United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley is proud to announce that we have been selected to be a part of the 2016 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). The U.S. government-sponsored CFC is the world’s largest and most prestigious workplace fundraising drive. The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy by providing federal employees with an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those in need.
Each fall, Federal employees are invited to support eligible national and local charities. Employees choose the groups they wish to support from a list of approved charities that have met the U.S. federal government’s high standards of program impact and financial accountability. The 2016 CFC official campaign season runs from October 1st through December 15th.
Through the CFC, federal employees have raised over $8 billion since 1961 to help sustain community, state, national and international health, educational, environmental and human services.
