Combined Federal Campaign – Annual charity drive underway
The Combined Federal Campaign, the federal government’s annual workplace charity drive, began Sept. 1 and runs through Jan. 14.
All Postal Service workers, contractors and retirees can participate.
The Combined Federal Campaign, also known as the CFC, allows individuals to contribute to thousands of charitable organizations, here and around the globe. Pledges are accepted online, on paper or via mobile app.
Since it began in 1961, the campaign has raised more than $8.5 billion for its causes.
This year’s goal for the Postal Service is $5 million. Most donations are monetary, but volunteer work can also be pledged and will count toward the USPS total.
For example, participants can pledge time to volunteer for charities helping the nation emerge from the pandemic.
The CFC online giving portal offers all the giving options. The system meets all federal security standards and reduces paper waste, although paper pledge forms will be available for those who prefer not to donate electronically.
The CFC Giving mobile app has been updated to allow full payroll deduction options.
Employees with questions can email the Postal Service’s CFC team.
