Frequently Asked Questions Combined Federal Campaign

My 501(c)(3) non profit organization was established one year ago. It has provided real services in over 20 states but does not meet the three year eligibility for National listing. Does the CFC require that participating organizations be in existence for at least three years?

The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) does not require that participating organizations be in existence for a minimum of three years. Organizations that apply to participate as national/international charities may submit examples of services provided within the previous three years to demonstrate a national or international presence. There is no requirement that services were provided in each of those years, however.
