WELCOME TO THE COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN (CFC)
COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN 2.0 is new and improved for 2017!
As you are probably aware, some critical aspects of the CFC have changed in 2017, but the mission remains the same: 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.
As the Honorary Chairperson of the 2017 CFC, I would like to thank you for considering to support your favorite local, national or international charities through the CFC.
This year, we are asking you to Show Some Love by making a pledge, via monetary gift or volunteer time, to one or more of the many worthy charities in the campaign. Together, we will help wounded warriors, provide medical care, feed the hungry, house the homeless, protect animals and the environment, and make a difference in countless other ways.
The beauty of the CFC is that it is large and small at the same time. How is this possible? The CFC harnesses our collective power to positively impact the lives of millions of people while honoring our individual gifts to the causes we personally care about the most.
The changes this year are designed to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of the CFC. The key to success remains the same: helping to connect you with the causes you care most deeply about – causes that can extend your commitment to public service beyond the Federal agency, department or military service where you work.
Thank you for continuing the proud 56-year tradition of the CFC and ushering this important program into a new era. Thousands of charitable organizations and the people they serve every day depend upon our support. Now, let’s make this the best campaign yet. TOGETHER, LET’s SHOW SOME LOVE!!!
The Honorable Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D.
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
2017 CFC Honorary Chairperson
