Community Health Charities Launches #Thanks8billion CFC Appreciation Campaign

This week, Community Health Charities launched a #Thanks8billion campaign to recognize military and federal personnel who have given so generously through the annual Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), raising more than $8 billion over more than 50 years.

“Most of the news coverage recently around CFC has been negative,” said Thomas G. Bognanno, president and CEO, Community Health Charities. “It was high time someone focused on the unprecedented impact this campaign has had over the years and the leadership and unselfish commitment of our government workforce.”

The CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace giving campaign, with almost 200 separate CFC campaigns throughout the country and overseas, raising tens of millions of dollars each year.

Special recognition goes to last year’s top CFC contributors:

1. Department of Defense (civilian and military)
2. United States Postal Service
3. Department of Health and Human Services
4. Department of Homeland Security
5. Department of Veteran Affairs
6. Department of Commerce
7. Department of Treasury
8. Department of Transportation
10. Department of Justice

Through their generosity in the CFC, federal and military personnel have helped find cures for children with cancer, supported injured military veterans and their families, provided meals and housing for those in need, and improved millions of lives, building stronger, healthier communities for all of us.

To align with the CFC opening last week and the National Capital Area kicking off this week, Community Health Charities is embarking on an appreciation campaign, including a #Thanks8billion social media blitz, plus ads this week in The Washington Post, Army Times, Navy Times, Marine Corp Times, and Air Force Times, as well as an upcoming ad in The National Association of Postal Supervisors’ The Postal Supervisor magazine, and more.

Community Health Charities also is hosting a series of CFC Summits that bring together the top revenue-generating nonprofits in the CFC to discuss ways to collaborate and take action to propel the campaign forward.

CFC is open September 9, 2019 through January 12, 2020:
