Child adoptions. Free mammograms.  Disaster relief. Food donations. 

These are just a few of the many efforts that are supported by the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) program because of the generosity of Federal employees. I am pleased and proud to announce that in 2014, Federal employees donated $193.2 million to charities around the world. The average gift from individuals also increased in size from $322 in 2013 to $340 in 2014.

One of the highlights of this year’s campaign was the introduction of universal giving. Employees were able to donate not just to the causes listed on their local CFC Charity Lists but to any of the 24,000 CFC organizations. The idea behind universal giving is to allow employees to donate to causes in their hometowns and other places they care about. After all, charitable giving is a very personal decision that comes from the heart, and the options for giving should reflect that. Universal giving especially helps military service members and civilian employees whose jobs take them overseas or to various posts around the country.

There are more exciting changes to the CFC on the way.  For the 2016 campaign, there will be a simplified e-giving option for all Federal employees and an online application system for charities. OPM is also streamlining the pledge processing system to reduce administrative costs.  We are also introducing educational programs that will allow employees to interact with charities and their beneficiaries to find out about how CFC contributions can make a real impact in people’s lives.

Federal employees have a passion for service, and not just on the job. Whether it’s giving money through the CFC or the time they devote to service projects, Federal employees are always there, serving their communities.

Thank you for continuing to make the CFC the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace giving campaign. You continue to make a real and meaningful difference. And your generous participation in the CFC is one of the many reasons that I am proud to be a leader of a public service workforce that is second to none.
