The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the annual fundraising drive that provides an opportunity for DoD military and civilian, Federal and US Postal Service employees to contribute to local, national, and international non-profit organizations. U.S. Office
of Personnel Management's (OPM) Office of CFC Operations administers CFC.
The mission of CFC, established by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing DoD, Federal and US Postal Service employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charitable giving campaign with 125 campaigns located throughout the country and internationally in 2016. Since its inception in 1961, DoD, Federal and US Postal Service employees have contributed more than $8 billion
to nearly 20,000 non-profit organizations through CFC.
Modernization includes extending the campaign timeline. Beginning this year, OPM's new pledge system will be available to donors from
September 1, 2017, through January 15, 2018. Local campaign dates will be October 4, 2017, through November 17, 2017. Donors will have the opportunity
to pledge throughout OPM's timeline.
