The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the annual fund-raising drive conducted by Federal employees in their workplace each fall. The CFC is exclusively for: Civilian Federal Employees Military Personnel United States Postal Workers What is the CFC?
Only authorized solicitation One campaign - once a year One directory Nonprofits must meet standards Can give through payroll deduction, cash or check OPM provides regulations, oversight and guidance
Why the CFC? Eliminates year-round solicitation by charitable organizations of Federal employees in the Federal workplace. CFC lists only agencies that are pre-screened for eligibility by your LFCC. The Office of Personnel Management also verifies that every agency is recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit agency. Offers a donor the convenience of using payroll deduction to make charitable contributions.
