National CFC Information
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 is an annual fundraising drive that provides an opportunity for federal civilian, postal, and military employees to donate to local, national, and international non-profit organizations. The CFC offers federal employees a way to easily and conveniently make a contribution to the good of society as a whole based on their own values. Contributors are not donating to the CFC, but THROUGH the CFC to support their favorite charities.
The CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign. Conducted by the federal government under the authority of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the CFC operates in more than 100 localities throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and in overseas military bases. This is the only authorized fundraising entity for federal government employees.

In 2013, federal employees contributed $209 million to over 20,000 non-profit organizations through the CFC. The CFC runs from annually September 1 through December 15; however, each local CFC may have a shorter campaign season. See the home page for our local campaign dates.
Non-Profit Agency Selection
All decisions regarding the inclusion of agencies in a local CFC campaigns rest with the local CFC Board of Directors, called the Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC). The Board of Directors is composed of Federal employees and representatives of labor unions with Federal employees as members. Every year, the local Board of Directors selects one of the voluntary organizations involved in the CFC to manage the campaign and serve as fiscal agent. This agency, called the Principal Combined Fund Organization (PCFO), manages the CFC. OPM sets strict requirements for this role, including annual audits of the PCFO by an independent CPA. The current PCFO of the Heartland Combined Federal Campaign is United Way of Greater Kansas City.
