What is the Combined Federal Campaign?
Each autumn, individuals employed by the federal government conduct a fund-raising drive at their places of work. It is called the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). This campaign allows federal employees and military personnel to raise millions of dollars to benefit numerous nonprofit organizations.
Compassion participates in this campaign through Christian Service Charities (CSC), an organization that represents Christian charities in workplace fund-raising drives. Our CFC number is 10522.
How does it work?
When the campaign kicks off at your workplace, you will be provided with a pledge card. In order to donate to Compassion, simply write our CFC number (10522) in the space provided.
Both the CSC and the CFC deduct fund-raising expenses before they distribute the funds raised in this campaign. Therefore, Compassion will not receive 100 percent of the money you donate through the CFC. However, the CFC is the only way for federal employees to take part in workplace giving and we know employees are strongly encouraged to take part in the campaign. For this reason, Compassion feels it is important that we offer you the option of contributing to us in this way.
If you sponsor a Compassion child, please note that gifts contributed through the CFC cannot be used toward monthly sponsorship. Since Compassion is not in control of exactly when we receive a CFC contribution, and because we do not receive 100 percent of the donation, it is not possible to allocate it for sponsorship. Instead, the gift will go to the Partners of Compassion (POC) fund.
