2016 CFC Giving Results Announced

Dear CFC Stakeholders:

Thanks to your efforts and the generosity of more than 400,000 Federal employees, the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) raised over $167 million for local, national and international charities last fall. These funds make a real and meaningful difference to a countless number of individuals throughout the world.


President Obama Authorizes OPM to Create More Opportunities for Feds to Support Community Charities

The way federal employees and retirees will participate in the Combined Federal Campaign is about to change thanks to an amendment to Executive Order 12353 President Barack Obama signed October 13.  The revised order authorizes the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to implement changes to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). These changes are significant and amount to a “game changer” for the CFC program and its stakeholders.

The two changes enable OPM to allow participation by annuitants; and introduce volunteerism through the CFC.

The Fall 2015 campaign marks the third campaign that the Department of Defense will utilize a special CFC module in the myPay system.  This module allows military and civilian personnel in the Department of Defense (DoD) and other Federal customers of the Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS) to establish a CFC allotment within the “open season.”   Open season is expected to commence on 8 SEP with the final database. 


Employee Recognition

CFC regulations require that awards be of nominal value. This requirement is not just a CFC requirement, but is also a requirement of the Office of Government Ethics. Federal employees are not authorized to receive gifts and awards, other than those of nominal value. Generally, awards of nominal value are also considered to be minimal for personal tax liability. This principle also applies to any award that is to be presented to recognize an agency's CFC performance. The value is determined either by the cost of manufacturing the award or its fair market value.
