What is the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)? President Kennedy established the CFC to streamline charitable giving by federal employees. Today, the federal government facilitates a CFC solicitation period for up to two months of the year. This is also a benefit for federal employees so they can support a worthy charity of their choice, by convenient pay allotments run automatically through payroll.
How do I contribute to the Pennsylvania National Guard Foundation? It’s easy. Visit https://cfcgiving.opm.gov/offerings and insert code #85752 to select the Pennsylvania National Guard Foundation in the Eastern Pennsylvania/Southern New Jersey CFC Zone. You can also choose an allotment by consulting your payroll office: the allotment must run for a year (so EAS/separation must be beyond Jan-Dec 2021); but NAF(MCCS)/Gov’t Service (Federal Employees)/Active Duty Military can donate.
Who can give? ANYONE can give a cash/check donation to the Pennsylvania National Guard Foundation (PNGF). Federal employees can donate through the CFC. Contractors should not be solicited, but may make a cash or check donation through the CFC or directly to the Foundation.
Why is PNGAS pushing this? First the first-time ever, federal employees can contribute to the Pennsylvania National Guard Foundation through the CFC with code #85752!
What if we have questions? No problem, please contact PNGAS at PNGAS@PNGAS.org.
Is my donation tax deductible? Absolutely; all charities in the CFC are tax deductible. If you “itemize” your deductions when you do your taxes, just save a copy of your pledge card and claim it.

What if I gave to another charity through the CFC last year? That’s fine, and thank you! CFC allotments only run for one year; from January to December.
