What is the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)?
The CFC is the official workplace giving campaign of the federal government. The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world.
Who can donate to the CFC?
Federal workers, retirees, and government contractors are eligible to donate to the CFC.
How can a donor make a pledge to the CFC?
Donors to the CFC have the option of submitting a pledge via payroll deduction, cash, check, credit or debit card, or e-check/ACH. Pledges may be processed online or by completing a paper pledge form. See our Pledging Tutorial for a step-by-step guide on how to submit a pledge to the CFC.
Will I receive a confirmation of my pledge and a tax receipt?
If you pledged by payroll deduction, you will not receive a tax receipt. For tax purposes, you will need to pair the names of the charities you designated (as shown on your pledge form) with the total amount deducted from your paychecks for the year, which can be found on your final leave and earning statement.
If you made a donation by one-time or recurring debit/credit/ACH, you will need a copy of the receipt that was automatically emailed to you for tax purposes. For a recurring donation, you will need that email receipt, along with copies of your monthly credit card or bank statement for tax purposes.
Can I donate to more than one charity?
Yes. Donors may support as many charitable organizations as they would like in one single pledge. You may choose how funds are allocated to each charity.
What are the eligibility requirements for a charity to participate in the CFC?
To be eligible to participate in the CFC, each charitable organization must be designated as a tax-exempt non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. An application to participate in the CFC must provide specific information about their auditing, governance and program functions, as specified in the CFC regulations. Applicants must also provide a completed and signed copy of their IRS Form 990 for their most recent fiscal year.
