What is the Combined Federal Campaign?
The CFC is the only authorized solicitation of employees in the Federal workplace on behalf of charitable organizations. It continues to be the largest and most successful workplace fundraising model in the world. With a tradition of commitment to the community through the selfless efforts of Federal employees, the CFC has its roots in the many charitable campaigns of the early 1960's. Seeing a need to bring the diversity of fundraising efforts under one umbrella, the CFC was created - one campaign, once a year. In 2005, Federal employees around the world raised more than $268 million for charitable causes.
