This fall’s CFC campaign will be starting about a month later than normal and run into early January for the first time. The official start date is October 2. The actual start date in at least some of the CFC’s 37 regions may be later than this. Normally the campaign starts right after Labor Day.
This fall’s Combined Federal Campaign will be run in a completely different way, the biggest changes in the federal charity drive in 30 years.

For many CFC charities, deciding to re-apply is a deceptively difficult decision. One factor: as many as half the charities in last year's CFC may drop out because of the new fees.
When a disaster happens, what’s the best way to respond?
Today there are more than 1.1 million charities registered with the IRS. It’s great to have so many charities to support. But how do you decide which charities?
With all the charity horror stories in the news, how do you know if a charity is a scam or spends a huge amount of its donations on raising money and paying its staff? It’s actually not too hard to do quick research on most charities.
The new rules for the Combined Federal Campaign will cause major changes in the CFC, especially how the campaign is run and paid for.
Americans give more than $1 billion a day to charities: $390 billion in 2016. This figure includes giving by individuals, corporations and foundations.
