CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with more than 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and internationally to help to raise millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (September 1st to December 15th) support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. The Director of OPM has designated responsibility for day-to-day management of the CFC to its CFC Operations office.

The US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is the regulatory body of the CFC. OPM administers the campaign government-wide, ensuring that all CFCs are operated effectively and efficiently while adhering to all prescribed rules and regulations. They also review and make the final decisions on all charities eligible for the National and International Lists. OPM is the final administrative level for appeals on national and local applications, provides guidance and technical advice on regulations and has the authority to conduct audits on any CFC fiscal records. To learn more about OPM, or CFC regulations, visit their website at www.opm.gov/cfc.
The Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC) is the "Board of Directors." The LFCC provides management oversight to the local campaign. Review and decisions regarding the inclusion of agencies in your local campaigns rests with the LFCC. The LFCC is comprised of Federal employees who volunteer each year to help manage the campaign in accordance with all regulations and requirements.
The Principal Combined Fund Organization (PCFO) manages and executes the daily operations of the CFC. Every year, the LFCC selects a qualified non-profit organization to manage the campaign and serve as fiscal agent. OPM sets strict requirements for this role. Each year, the PCFO’s performance is reviewed and audited to ensure compliance with all regulations and ensure that all CFC funds are collected and distributed as designated by federal donors.
