The Combined Federal Campaign(CFC) is the only authorized solicitation of Federal employees in their workplace on behalf of approved charitable organizations. The CFC began in the early 1960’s to coordinate the fund-raising effort of various charitable organizations so that the Federal donor would only be solicited once, annually, in the workplace and have the opportunity to make charitable contributions through payroll deduction.
Federal employees continue to make the CFC the largest and most successful workplace philanthropic fundraiser in the world. Continuing a long-standing tradition of selfless giving, in 2013, 800,000 Federal employees raised more than $209 million dollars through the CFC for charitable causes around the world.
The mission of the CFC, which was established by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
The CFC runs from September 1st through December 15th each year. The Office of Personnel Management Office of CFC Operations administers the CFC. CLICK HERE FOR CFC REGULATIONS
