CFC Overview and Campaign Plan
What is CFC?
4

CFC is the only authorized solicitation of the Federal employees in their
workplaces on behalf of approved charitable organizations.

The CFC began in the early 1960’s to coordinate with the fundraising efforts
of various charitable organizations so that the Federal donor would only be
solicited once in the workplace and have the opportunity to make charitable
contributions through payroll deduction.

Federal employees continue to make the CFC the largest and most
successful workplace philanthropic fundraiser in the world.

Illiowa Bi-State region raised $401,096 in 2013 for local, national and
international charities
2014 Campaign Dates: September 1 through December 15
