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.


2017 Charity Application Deadline Extended to March 17

The response to the new Combined Federal Campaign application system has been tremendous and the Office of CFC continues to offer organizations training on the use of the new system and on newly revised CFC regulations, which came into effect on January 1, 2017.  In addition, there has been some misunderstanding among charities about the new application process.  Therefore, in an effort to clarify the process and to offer every opportunity to nonprofit organizations seeking to participate in this outstanding program, the OPM Acting Director extended the application deadline through March 17, 2017...

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.
