The 2017 Combined Federal Campaign officially kicked off at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, North Carolina. This year’s campaign theme is “Show some love.”

According to the Office of Personnel Management, the CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. 

This year, the base’s campaign begins Oct. 23 and will end Dec. 1, with a goal of raising $75,000. During this timeframe, members interested in donating can make pledges online at by creating an account at or through their respective group's CFC representative.

A wide range of more than 20,000 non-profit organizations and charities are eligible for donations through the CFC. The donation website features a search tool at the top of the page to find specific charities by name, location or interest.

“Many of us have been blessed with so much,” Senior Master Sgt. Felipe Perez, CFC representative said. “I can’t see a reason why we would not want to give. Even a one-time pledge will go a long way; every little bit counts.”

This year’s campaign features new ways for members to “Show some love.”

-          Giving is now 100% online

-          Members can now donate to volunteer time or money

-          Retirees are now eligible to donate

 “Airmen give in many ways and the CFC is a great avenue to do so if you wish to donate your time or money,” Col. Christopher Sage, 4th Fighter Wing commander said.
