Federal Employees And Central Asia Institute

Central Asia Institute works in an area of the world that intersects many different parts of our lives. Most notably is our relationship with the governments of four different countries; the United States of America, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan. Foreign policy between them has a profound effect on all of our lives. Over the course of our twenty year history CAI has forged deep relationships with employees who see the value educating girls has for our future. In the USA federal employees are prohibited from directly supporting 501(c)(3) organizations. Combined Federal Campaigns were created to give these employees a way to support organizations.

What is the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)?

The CFC is where employees of the Federal government can officially give to nonprofits they care about. The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy by providing Federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. The CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with 125 CFCs throughout the country and overseas 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.

Why is the CFC important?

Over the past 55 years, Federal employees contributed more than $8 billion through regional CFCs across America. The CFC of the National Capital Area (CFCNCA) is the largest of the CFCs. Last year, Federal employees generously pledged more than $46 million to charities through the CFCNCA.

Who can donate to the CFC?

Federal workers, retirees and government contractors are eligible to donate to the CFC.
