Combined Federal Campaign
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the largest workplace giving campaign in the world. Government employees give more than $40 million to Community Health Charities and its Member Charities annually. In New York, federal employees donated more than $885,000 last year!
Community Health Charities of New York salutes the generosity of federal employees, without whom our agencies would not be able to provide the magnitude of programs and services available today.

When making contributions during the 2009 CFC, Community Health Charities encourages you to pay careful attention to the percentage noted for an organizationís Administrative and Fund Raising ratio (AFR). Prior to 2007, charities could not participate in the CFC unless their AFR to revenue ratio was under 25%, or had a plan in place to achieve this target. Changes in regulations have since removed this criterion. Community Health Charities maintains the requirement of an AFR of less than or equal to 25% as part of its membership qualifications.
