For more than four decades, the U.S. government has sponsored the Combined Federal Campaign — the world's largest workplace fundraising drive.
Each fall, beginning in September, federal employees — civilian, military and postal — are invited to support eligible national and local charities. More than 1.3 million employees pledge over a quarter billion dollars each year.
Employees choose the groups they wish to support from a list of charities that have submitted applications and been deemed qualified by the CFC. More than 2,000 national organizations and 20,000 local organizations qualify for the Campaign annually.
Donors may give once or request that a specific amount be withheld from their paychecks throughout the following calendar year. Employees overwhelmingly select the ongoing payroll deduction program.
The CFC's combination of donor control and payroll deduction leads to high levels of support. Over a third of the federal workforce participates in the CFC each year, with the average pledge exceeding $150.
