What is the Combined Federal Campaign?

The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is one of the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaigns, with CFC zones throughout the country and overseas raising millions of dollars each year. CFC is the official workplace giving campaign for the federal community, offering federal employees and retirees the opportunity to support the causes they care about by giving to their charity (or charities) of choice from the thousands that participate.

Be a Changemaker through the CFC. The mission of the CFC is 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. The funds raised through the campaign help neighbors in need around the corner, across the nation, and throughout the world.

We all have a personal reason for giving, and when we make the choice to give through the CFC, we each hold the power in our own hands. The CFC makes it easy to honor a loved one, carry on a tradition, volunteer our skills, and so much more! Your pledge can be completed anonymously or with the release of your contact information to the charity you are supporting.


Visit the CFC Donor Pledging System to create an account and pledge (PDF, 2.4 MB) to the charities of your choice. Federal employees and retirees can pledge monetary support and volunteer time—online, with a paper pledge form, or through the CFC Giving Mobile App!

USDA was recognized by the Combined Federal Campaign - National Capital Area, receiving an award in the “Best Publication or Testimonial” category for the 2022 campaign year. Featuring Food, Nutrition, and Consumer Services Deputy Under Secretary Stacy Dean, this video was created to acknowledge and highlight the importance of the CFC’s Food and Nutrition causes that are in direct alignment with the USDA mission.

The team worked with FNS and USDA communications to incorporate footage from the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health, the Agency’s work with partners, and nutrition programs in action to create the video which has been viewed more than five thousand times. Congratulations to the entire team!
