OPM Announces Nationwide Special Solicitation

WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) announced that the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) will conduct a nationwide special solicitation to support charities serving and affected by COVID-19. This special solicitation will run through June 30.

Under this solicitation, the CFC giving platform will reopen for federal employees, military employees, and retirees who may want to make supplemental pledges to charities hard hit by the COVID-19 emergency, as well as to charities providing emergency services to Americans and global citizens affected by this pandemic. One hundred percent of the donations received will go directly to the over 6,000 local, national, and international health and human welfare charities who are struggling to keep up with the increased demand posed by COVID-19.

“By participating in this special solicitation, federal employees can contribute to charities that provide support to people impacted during this critical time. Americans are coming together to support one another, and the Combined Federal Campaign is a great opportunity for federal employees to continue in the long tradition we have of supporting our fellow Americans in need,” said Acting Director Michael Rigas.
