Welcome to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)
COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN 2.0 is new and improved for 2017!
As you are probably aware, some critical aspects of the CFC have changed in 2017, but the mission remains the same: to promote and support 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.
As the Honorary Chairperson of the 2017 CFC, I would like to thank you for considering to support your favorite local, national or international charities through the CFC.
This year, we are asking you to Show Some Love by making a pledge, via monetary gift or volunteer time, to one or more of the many worthy charities in the campaign. Together, we will help wounded warriors, provide medical care, feed the hungry, house the homeless, protect animals and the environment, and make a difference in countless other ways.
The beauty of the CFC is that it is large and small at the same time. How is this possible? The CFC harnesses our collective power to positively impact the lives of millions of people while honoring our individual gifts to the causes we personally care about the most.
The changes this year are designed to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of the CFC. The key to success remains the same: helping to connect you with the causes you care most deeply about – causes that can extend your commitment to public service beyond the Federal agency, department or military service where you work.
Thank you for continuing the proud 56-year tradition of the CFC and ushering this important program into a new era. Thousands of charitable organizations and the people they serve every day depend upon our support. Now, let’s make this the best campaign yet. TOGETHER, LET’s SHOW SOME LOVE!!!
The Honorable Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D.

2017 CFC Honorary Chairperson
Fellow Federal Employees:
Over the past 56 years, the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) has raised $8.2 billion to help those in need around the corner, across the nation, and throughout the world. That overwhelming success is made possible because of people like you. Each year, the men and women of the Federal Government go beyond their call to public service by contributing through the campaign to the thousands of charities that work to improve the quality of life for all.
In 2016, we pledged more than $47 million through the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area (CFCNCA) to help people and communities in need. Our donations provided support to schools, services to Veterans, medical research, and much more. All contributions, no matter how great or small, can have a huge impact, and in many cases, they can change someone’s life
This year we are asking Federal employees to choose their cause and Show Some Love by giving, volunteering, and telling their CFC story. While monetary contributions are crucial for charities to continue their work, we can now extend the impact of our gifts by pledging volunteer hours. In addition to making a pledge, we are all encouraged to share our volunteer experiences to encourage our fellow co-workers, friends, and family to do the same. Through these conversations, we can inspire others to support causes that matter to them.
Take a moment to choose your cause and join us as we Show Some Love through the CFC. Together, we can make a significant difference for those in need by continuing this longstanding tradition of compassion through the campaign.
