The CFC is the only authorized solicitation of employees in the Federal workplace on behalf of charitable organizations local, national and international.
The mission is to support and to promote philanthropy through a voluntary program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient and effective in providing Federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual federal workplace fundraising drive with almost 200 campaigns throughout the country and overseas raising millions of dollars each year.
Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign seasons support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world.
Each local campaign is managed by a Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC), which serves as a Board of Directors.
