Community service

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)

The Combined Federal Campaign is a federal government program that allows federal employees, including letter carriers, to donate to charitable organizations of their choice by designating an amount to be deducted from their paychecks. Employees may give to more than one charity. Participation is strictly voluntary.

CFC is one of the largest workplace giving programs in the country—federal employees and military personnel donate millions of dollars each year to thousands of charities and causes, a few dollars at a time, simply by filling out one form during the CFC drive period at the end of each year. An NALC representative or manager may provide forms and information on CFC during that period, or you can ask for information on how to designate donations.

Two charitable causes that letter carriers may want to consider supporting through CFC are:

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), the NALC’s official charity (CFC No. 10561).

The Postal Employees Relief Fund (PERF), a program administered by NALC and several other postal unions and management organizations that provides assistance to postal employees who are victims of natural disasters or home fires (CFC No. 10268).
