With the holiday season comes the generous holiday giving spirit.

All federal employees are encouraged to give to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), the only authorized solicitation of federal employees in their workplace on behalf of approved charitable organizations. The CFC coordinates the fund-raising efforts of various charitable organizations so that federal employees are solicited in the workplace just once a year and have the opportunity to make contributions through payroll deduction.

Federal employees continue to make the CFC the largest and most successful workplace philanthropic fundraiser in the world.

The Frederick area is served by the Chesapeake Bay Area CFC Branch, and you are encouraged to visit the website, where you may review the list of more than 20,000 charities and make your pledge to donate.

  1. Payroll deduction: This is the most convenient way to donate. Just follow the instructions here. Be sure to enter workplace code “FDNCI.”
