Combined federal campaign kickoff

Since the establishment of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) by President Kennedy in 1961, we’ve come a long way. Generous military members and federal employees have come together to support causes important to them by raising over $8.5 billion in pledges to local, national, and international charities over the last 60 years. To mark this achievement, we would like to announce the 2021 CFC!

This year’s CFC moto is “You Can Be The Face Of Change”.   By donating through the CFC, you become a change maker which leaves a lasting impact in our communities, our favorite charities, and the world.  How can I become a change maker this year?

MAKE A HOME ESCAPE PLAN, AND PRACTICE!

  • Draw a map of your home with doors and windows.
  • Each room should have two ways out.
  • Establish a meeting place outside.
  • Talk about the plan with your family, including dialing 9-1-1 in an emergency.
  • Showtime! Time to practice closing doors and windows as you test the smoke detector and practice your home escape plan.
