Thank you to everyone who helped Show Some Love during the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Special Solicitation period. The steadfastness of the federal community is awe-inspiring. They continue to fulfill professional responsibilities and keep our country moving. In this time of considerable uncertainty, we thank them as they and continue to lead by example.
The Special Solicitation has closed, and because of your generous donations the CFC collectively raised nearly 2.7 million dollars nationwide.
About the Special Solicitation
The global pandemic is putting a strain on resources everywhere. Your charitable donations through the 2019 CFC are already providing critical support during this challenging year. Thank you! Officials from several federal departments and agencies contacted The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) asking how to do even more to help charities affected during this global pandemic. In response, OPM authorized a CFC Special Solicitation, which reopened the CFC online pledge portal and the CFC mobile giving application through 30 June 2020.
Charities will receive funds pledged during the CFC Special Solicitation with their monthly distributions: May 15, 2020, through January 15, 2021 (for recurring donations).
How Federal Employees Responded
The generosity of the federal community knows and shows no bounds. In times of urgent need, the federal community continually goes above and beyond the call of duty to help their neighborhood, country, and the world through any disaster it faces. Through the CFC, the federal community gave back and donated to their favorite organizations, helping those in need worldwide.
The CFC is uniquely positioned as the only authorized solicitation of federal employees in the workplace on behalf of charitable organizations. The CFC online pledge portal is a safe, trusted, and proven way to make contributions to more than 6,000 qualified 501(c)(3) CFC-approved charitable organizations.
