Bill Huddleston, The CFC Coach, commends the Thousands of Federal and Non-profit Volunteers who Make the Combined Federal Campaign A Success Each Year

Posted on April 25, 2013. Filed under: Combined Federal Campaign - CFC, Fundraising, Leadership, Nationa Volunteer Week, Non-profits |

Huddleston said, “The CFC is actually one of the largest volunteer programs in the country, and that in addition to the thanking the donors that contribute to a particular charity, that there are thousands of federal volunteers who each fall work together to run successful workplace giving campaigns in their agencies.   It’s absolutely fitting during National Volunteer Week to honor all the program and fundraising volunteers that help make the American non-profit sector the most vital in the world.”

Through the CFC, federal public servants have given more than $1 billion of their money to thousands of local, national and international charities over the past five years.  In terms of actual giving, if the CFC were a foundation it would be the 14th largest foundation in the United States.

All CFC funds are unrestricted which means that the CFC is the single largest source of unrestricted funds for non-profit in the world.  The general rule of thumb in the non-profit world is that unrestricted funds are three times as valuable as restricted funds.

Some of the articles about the CFC results have focused on the drop in donations, Huddleston said, “What should be recognized is that even after three years of pay freezes, and bashing by politicians that Federal public servants know that the contributions they make through the CFC really do make a difference.”
