GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — The annual workplace giving campaign within the U.S. military and federal government takes place now through Jan. 12, 2020.


There will be a CFC Kickoff Event and Key Worker Training following the Community Leader Information Forum on Nov. 12 at noon at the Tower View Conference Center.


The Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas, or CFC-O, provides uniformed and civilian DOD personnel serving overseas the opportunity to support charitable organizations or causes of their choice from the CFC catalog or via the internet.


CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with almost 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and overseas raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by Federal civilians, postal and military donors during the campaign season will support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world.


Retirees can also contribute.


Contributors may make their pledge in one of the following ways:


  • eGiving payments using a credit card, debit card, electronic bank transfer or payroll deduction on the online pledge portal. The last day to make a gift online is Jan. 12, 2020. This one-stop, user-friendly, web-based giving system has many benefits, including the ability to establish a secure account and access donation information for tax season.


  • Traditional paper pledge forms. Donors can obtain pledge forms from their unit representatives or print their own.


  • Volunteer time. Any charity that has an image of a hand next to its name in the print or online catalog is requesting volunteer hours. You can pledge hours of support as one more way to make an impact on a cause that’s important to you. Be sure to check the box “I do not want to remain anonymous” when making your pledge, so the charity can contact you to follow up on volunteer opportunities.


CFC-O organizers encourage people to make their pledges online for speedier contribution.


CFC-O no longer accepts cash contributions.
