Show Some Love 2018 CFC

 

Each and every day, we as federal employees make a positive difference in our country, city and community. Each and every day, we serve to protect, defend, educate and maintain our health as a nation. Each and every day, we show generosity of spirit through public service. And each year, we have the opportunity to expand that service by giving through the Combined Federal Campaign.

 

Over the last 57 years, federal employees have united in a tradition of giving to those in need locally, nationally and internationally. We are proud to take part in a program where we are given the opportunity to take action and show compassion for the causes that touch our hearts. Together, the federal community has provided over $8.3 billion in philanthropic support through the CFC.

 

This year is another opportunity for all of us to join together and donate to charitable causes that motivate us. Through the CFC, we can directly donate time and resources to the causes we care most about. Take a moment to find a cause that means something to you – whether it is sheltering families after a hurricane, helping biologists save an endangered species, tutoring a child through an after-school program, supporting families of our deployed troops, funding research to find a cure for cancer or protecting our planet Earth. The CFC has a charity for any cause you want to support.

 

Employees can donate to one or more charities by going to the Office of Personnel Management’s online giving portal. The website replaces paper pledge documents previously used and allows users to search for their preferred organizations with an improved search engine.
