Frequently Asked Questions Combined Federal Campaign

Does a special solicitation permit Federal employees to collect food, medical supplies, or other kinds of non-cash donations?

CFC regulations do not restrict Federal employees from soliciting 'in-kind' (i.e. non-cash) contributions, such as food or toys, by placing donation receptacles in common areas. No special solicitation authority is required to do this, but is subject to the authority of the agency head. OPM encourages you to contact your ethics counsel or General Counsel for guidance.
