RELEASE: Office of Personnel Management Announces CFC Nationwide Special Solicitation for 2022 War in Ukraine and Humanitarian Crisis

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) announced that the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) will conduct a special solicitation that will allow the federal community to support charities serving and affected by the war in Ukraine and the resulting humanitarian and refugee crisis. This special solicitation will run through June 30, 2022.  

“Through the annual Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), members of the federal family demonstrate that our commitment to public service extends far beyond the workplace,” said OPM Director Kiran Ahuja. “In this moment of need, our efforts should focus on assisting the people of Ukraine.” 

On March 24, 2022, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. ordered federal assistance to help ease the burden on people in Europe and refugees around the world impacted by the war. Millions of Ukrainians, especially vulnerable populations, are in great need. Many of these individuals are unable to access clean water, food, shelter, and medical care. In response, OPM will open a CFC special solicitation to help victims and refugees affected by the war, and by shortages in food, medical attention, housing, and other day-to-day needs.  

A nationwide special solicitation will allow federal employees to voluntarily support the CFC’s participating charities that may be aiding people and organizations willed, injured, and otherwise displaced during this war as well as those on the front-line providing emergency assistance to global citizens affected by this crisis. All non-profits included in this special solicitation were approved to participate in the 2021 CFC. 

By reactivating the CFC, OPM encourages federal workers, members of the military, and postal employees to provide emergency assistance that will contribute toward the health and stability of charities and the people who rely upon them for critical help at this time.
