How to Give

The 2020 CFC ran from September 21, 2020 - January 15, 2021. Federal employees who are new hires can still donate through the CFC using the online pledge portal. The CFC offers a broad range of giving options. There are three ways to give: online, paper pledge form, and the CFC Giving Mobile App.

To make an anonymous donation, do not complete the optional "Information Release" section on the paper pledge form or the online giving system.
