Concerns about CFC Charities

The Combined Federal Campaign, a program that encourages Federal civilian, postal and military donors to give part of their pay checks to charity, is the nation's largest workplace giving campaign.

Just how big is it? In 2007, Federal employees gave over $270 million. And since its launch in 1961, the CFC has generated nearly $6 billion in contributions.

Unfortunately, our analysis shows that some of the charities on the receiving end of all this generosity are not the most efficient.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
