Giving Tuesday


#GivingTuesday has become a global movement of giving back and encouraging philanthropy. It began in 2012 as a charitable response to the consumerism of the post-Thanksgiving season in Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

This year, #GivingTuesday is on December 3!

Since 2012, more than $1 billion has been raised on #GivingTuesday alone to support charitable causes. Last year, Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area (CFCNCA) saw generous donations from federal employees amounting to over $2.2 million.


During this season of giving thanks, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to help those who are less fortunate. This annual day of giving is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others – just like the CFC! 

Let’s show the country the generosity of the federal community by making #GivingTuesday the biggest one-day pledge total during the entire campaign.

  1. Make a CFC contribution to your favorite charities via payroll deduction, with a one-time gift, and pledge of volunteer hours through the online giving potal. 
  2. Get involved at your department, agency, or office Spirit Week festivities and activites - whether it's an event, the scavenger hunt, or simply sharing with colleagues about causes important to you!
  3. Post a Donor Card near your desk to encourage others in your office to make their CFC pledge too.
  4. Follow the CFC hashtag #ShowSomeLoveCFC on official CFCNCA social media channels to see others' posts about giving back.
  5. Together, our collective efforts and generosity can help make #GivingTuesday the highest pledging day in CFC history!
