“With some 25,000 participating charities, the CFC is the world’s largest and most successful workplace charitable drive.
Last year Federal workers and military personnel pledged over $283 million dollars, setting a new CFC record. Donations to the CFC change lives and bring relief and hope to thousands of communities and millions of Americans.I’ve always said that Federal employees are big-hearted people. Nothing demonstrates that caring spirit better than the CFC. Year after year, Federal workers across the nation and around the world show remarkable generosity. In these challenging economic times, it is more important than ever to open our hearts –and our wallets –to extend a helping hand.Federal civil servants never shrink from a challenge. This year, with so many in need, let’s show the American people what the men and women of the Federal government can do when we work together on a common cause. We’ve had seven consecutive years of pledge increases and record-setting annual CFC donations. Let’s make 2010 our next record-setting year!”
