- Over 2,500 charities that have been approved by Federal employees are eligible for payroll deducted contributions made by Federal employees.
- Last year, in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, 77,000 Federal employees were solicited – 28.0% pledged nearly $5.0 million toward a wide variety of essential community services.
- Over the past 19 years, Federal employees in this region have contributed nearly $80 million to hundreds for charities through the CFC.
- CFC supported charities focus on issues that are important to everyone. Disaster relief, care for animals and the environment, Education, medical research & services just to name a few.
- CFC funds helps replenish and maintain a charity’s general fund, so they can be prepared to and have the resources to immediately respond to emergencies or disasters.
- CFC provides charities with a steady monthly income for a year so they will have more time to plan and provide their much needed services.
- Because CFC relies on volunteer leadership from within the Federal Community, CFC maintains the lowest administrative costs, currently about 11.0%.
- Is extremely successful because of the support of Federal managers, coordinators, keyworkers and loaned executives.
