Press Room

For the past 59 years, the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) has been the federal workplace giving tradition that has raised more than $8.4 billion for charitable organizations. The CFC is one of the world’s most successful annual workplace fundraising campaigns, with 36 CFC zones throughout the country and overseas raising millions of dollars each year. The funds raised each fall through the campaign help neighbors in need around the corner, across the nation, and throughout the world. The Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area (CFCNCA) is the local campaign for federal employees and retirees in the Washington Metropolitan Area and surrounding regions. It is the largest CFC in the country based on the number of pledged gifts. Through the contributions of civilian and military federal employees and retirees, the campaign generated more than $34.2 million and more than 69,500 volunteer hours in 2019 for thousands of participating local, national, and international charities. For more information, visit cfcnca.org. Connect with the campaign on social media via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
