The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the annual workplace charitable giving campaign for the Department of Defense (DoD) and Federal workforce. Contributions support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human welfare benefits. Since its inception in 1961, DoD and Federal employees have contributed more than $7 billion through CFC.
*The mission of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is to support and to promote philanthropy through a program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient and effective in providing all Federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
*The CFC belongs to you - the Federal employee. It is a partnership between the employee, the Federal government and the charitable organizations that benefit all.
*CFC is a complete donor-choice campaign. You direct your support to charities that work on the issues you care deeply about.
*CFC is convenient. It is efficient, it is easy and it is consistent! Donations collected through payroll giving are paid to the charities throughout the year and this consistency allows charities to allocate resources, qualify for grant funding, and implement their programs to the highest extent.
*CFC is one of the few revenue sources that charities can count on.
The charities you support through CFC focus on people who really need help, including the hungry, the homeless, the sick, the disabled, children and families in need and the environment we live in.

This coveted recognition belongs to everyone…our volunteers, our donors, our community partners!
Congratulations and sincere thanks to Mr. Don Thompson, Ms. Lorry Tanner, their dynamic teams, our Loaned Executives and legions of agency campaign volunteers for their stellar leadership planning (re-planning, suspending, restarting, etc…) and executing last year’s campaign. The unrivaled efforts kept us focused and ensured we remained on solid footing amidst the whirl that surrounded every aspect of the campaign!
A very special thanks to the many behind-the-scenes heroes - at WPAFB and outside the fence - whose dedication ensured Miami Valley CFC’s success with e-pledge, greatly-improved pledge processing, outdoor signage, publicity/visibility, governance/oversight, leadership, leadership, leadership…the list goes on and on and on.
Miami Valley CFC shares the Innovator lime light with CFC Overseas and EscaRosa CFC (Pensacola, FL). This is Miami Valley CFC's third Innovator award in five years.
