Each of the 36 local CFC zones is governed by a Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC). An LFCC is comprised of federal employees and, whenever possible, members of local federal inter-agency organizations, such as Federal Executive Boards, Federal Executive Associations or, in the absence of such organizations, self-organized associations of local federal officials. LFCCs are overseen by OPM and must comply with CFC regulations and guidance memoranda, as well as meet the deadlines in the CFC calendar. LFCCs serve as a board of directors for the campaign zone. LFCCs are responsible for selecting an Outreach Coordinator (OC) to implement the CFC in the local zone and monitoring their work.
MESSAGE FROM THE HONORARY CHAIRPERSON
Over the past 57 years, Federal employees, postal workers, members of the military services and others have been supporting local, national and international charities through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). As Director of the Peace Corps, I was honored to accept the role as National CFC Chair when asked by OPM Director Jeff Pon.
The Peace Corps and the CFC have much in common. President Kennedy launched both programs in the same year. At the Peace Corps, we seek people who are inspired by impact that is hands-on, grassroots-driven, and lasting. The CFC “corps” also seeks people who are inspired by making an impact in the lives of people and the charities that support them.
Since its founding in 1961, civilian employee and military personnel pledges totaling more than $8.3 billion have helped those in need around the corner, across the nation, and throughout the world. Whether using electronic pledging or traditional paper forms, the “people-to-people” mission remains the same: to promote and support philanthropy through an employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective program. All Federal employees have the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
Show Some Love by making a financial pledge, or volunteer time, to one or more of the many worthy charities in the campaign. Together, we will help wounded warriors, provide medical care, feed the hungry, house the homeless, protect animals and the environment, and make a difference in countless other ways.
All contributions, no matter how great or small, can have a huge impact, and in many cases, change someone’s life. The CFC harnesses our collective power to impact the lives of millions of people while honoring our individual gifts to the causes we personally care about the most.
In addition to making a pledge, we are encouraged to share our volunteer experiences, and to encourage our fellow co-workers, friends, and family to do the same. We can inspire others to support causes that matter to them.
Take a moment to choose your cause and join us as we Show Some Love through the CFC. Together, we can make a significant difference for those in need by continuing this longstanding tradition of compassion through the campaign.
The Honorable Jody K. Olsen, Ph., D.
2018 CFC Honorary Chairperson
MESSAGE FROM THE CAROLINAS CFC CHAIRPERSON
Dear Federal Employees:
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) was established in 1961 and is the only authorized workplace giving program for Federal Employees allowing an easy and effective means for supporting charitable organizations. Since inception, the CFC has raised nearly $8.3 billion, benefiting more than 28,000 participating charities.
Thanks to your efforts and the generosity of Federal, Postal, and military personnel and retirees, the Combined Federal Campaign raised over $101 million and pledged more than 125,000 volunteer hours for local, national, and international charities last fall. These funds and pledged volunteer hours make a real and meaningful difference to a countless number of individuals throughout the world.
Carolinas CFC Campaign includes more than 232,000 Federal Employees in 88 counties in North Carolina and 38 counties in South Carolina and, in 2017, made a difference with pledges of just over $1.9 million and 1,921 volunteer hours.
As your Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC) Chairperson, I encourage all federal employees to learn about this year’s campaign. CFC keyworkers will be visiting you to share campaign information on how to contribute and support one or more of the thousands of participating charities. Please be sure to Show Some Love to your favorite cause by also pledging volunteer time in addition to your monetary gifts. With the current state of the economy, now more than ever, our gifts matter so much to those in need.
Know that your dedication and generosity make a direct and positive impact on the lives of millions of people who need our help. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CFC and for choosing to Show Some Love through the 2018 campaign.
You and all who have contributed to the success of the CFC since 1961 should be proud of these accomplishments and I hope you know how grateful we are for everything you do to make the CFC a success.
On behalf of Carolinas CFC, Zone 25 Local Federal Coordinating Committee, THANK YOU!
