RELEASE: Office of Personnel Management Announces 2020 Combined Federal Campaign Results

Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) announced today that the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) raised nearly $83.6 million for local, national, and international charities. These funds make a real and meaningful difference to a countless number of individuals throughout local communities, the nation, and the world.

The total of $83.6 million represents monetary contributions of nearly $81.6 million and a value of $2 million in volunteer hours. Federal employees pledged more than 86,700 hours of volunteer service at CFC-approved charities, and participating non-profits value those hours as worth more than an additional $2 million to their organizations. This dollar figure is in addition to the $2.5 million federal employees pledged as a part of the Special Solicitation for COVID-19 from April through June 2020. For the fourth year in a row, all CFC donors had the option to pledge online, which generated $70 million (86 percent of overall pledges).

“I want to thank all of the federal, postal, military personnel, and retirees who participated in and donated to this cycle’s CFC,” said OPM Acting Director Kathleen McGettigan. “The CFC is uniquely positioned to help support those in need, especially during this extremely tough time as we’re still combating COVID-19 worldwide. I am very proud of the hard work that CFC teams at every Federal department and agency put in to adjust to fundraising in a virtual environment.”

CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with almost 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and overseas, raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by federal civilian, postal and military donors as well as retirees during the campaign season support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. Since its inception, the CFC program has raised more than $8.5 billion in pledges to local, national, and international charities.

Additionally, last week, OPM announced that the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is conducting a special solicitation to support charities serving and affected by Winter Storm Shirley. This special solicitation will run through April 9.
