Each year, a network of thousands of Federal employees work together to implement the campaign and inspire their colleagues to Show Some Love to the charities that mean the most to them. You are taking on a valuable role with a powerful community of caring that raises millions of dollars to help people in need each year. The work you do is critical to the success of this effort.

You will be working together to ensure that every Federal employee is informed about the opportunity to give through the campaign, and those efforts will bring help and hope to millions of people.

Service as a campaign worker is also a fantastic opportunity to network within your organization, increase your visibility, and hone your skills in management, strategic planning, creativity, problem solving, time management, and more.

The resources and information you’ll find here are tools you can use to conduct an extraordinary campaign. Thank you for serving as a leader for the CFC.
