Dear Federations and Charities:

It is with great pride and excitement I am announcing that the new CFC charity online application system is now open to accepting applications for the 2017 CFC campaign.  Please go to to submit your application. The application deadline is extended to February 28, 2017.  If you have any questions regarding the use of the online application system, please call the Customer Care Center at 888-232-4935.  If you have any policy questions, please contact our office at 202-606-2564 or send them to

Attached are recent memoranda with information on application requirements.  Please review these prior to going to the online application system to ensure you have the necessary documentation ready. 

It is important to note: 1) All organizations must apply each year whether they are required to provide a full application or a verification application; 2) All organizations must pay the application fee whether they provide a full application or verification application; and 3) Providing a verification application does not mean your organization has been automatically approved for participation in that campaign.

Key Program Improvements

There are several changes being implemented this year which I feel have amazing potential  for the 2017 CFC campaign.   Two key improvements are: 1) Federal annuitants may now be solicited and will be able to pledge through their annuities, which will double the current donor base; and 2)  Federal donors may register to volunteer time to your organization through the CFC.

We will be scheduling application training sessions early next month.  I recommend you register your organization in the online application system and peruse it prior to attending training to get the most benefit.

I look forward to an exciting and vibrant 2017 campaign. 

Keith Willingham, Director
