WHAT IS CFC? Introduction and Background (PAGE 2 IN YOUR MANUAL

6 6 WHAT IS CFC? Introduction and Background (Page 2 in your manual) The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the ONLY AUTHORIZED SOLICITATION OF EMPLOYEES IN THE Federal workplace on behalf of charitable organizations. In 1961, President Kennedy, by Executive Order, directed that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) develop a once-a-year workplace campaign for all Federal employees, including the military services and the U.S. Postal Service. CFC was established as a “designation campaign” and offered donors the convenience of payroll deduction for their charitable contributions.

7 7 WHAT IS CFC? Introduction and Background (PAGE 2 IN YOUR MANUAL Participating charitable agencies must:  Apply annually for campaign inclusion  Demonstrate sound fiscal management to the LFCC  Exhibit high integrity of conduct  Serve the community as a human health and welfare organization Donors may designate their donations, confident that the charity utilizes its resources properly and conducts its services with a high degree of competency.

9 9 COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS (PAGE 4 IN YOUR MANUAL My CFC contribution is distributed to selected charitable organizations as determined by a committee or individual. The CFC and the United Way campaign are one-in-the-same When giving through the CFC my contribution supports every agency listed in the brochure. A major portion of my contribution goes for administrative expenses. A payroll deduction contribution continues forever. I am being pressured to participate in the Combined Federal Campaign. My office/agency does not participate in the Combined Federal Campaign.
