After your years of public service, Federal retirees like you may want to continue giving back to their community, country, and people around the world. The great news is, you can continue to make a positive impact by giving through your annuity. Whether you are returning or pledging for the first time, participation in the CFC is a great way to extend that spirit of service. In fact, Federal and military retirees contributed more than $4.2 million in 2022, making up 6% of overall donations.
Planning to Retire?

How the CFC Works - for Retirees
Here's how the CFC works for current Federal retirees:
1. Choose your cause.
The CFC allows members of the Federal community, including retirees, to support causes you care about. Whether it is finding cures for diseases, supporting military families, or promoting equality for all, the CFC has vetted charities for any cause you want to support. You can even give to multiple charities with one pledge.
2. Make your pledge.
GIVE HAPPY by donating from your annuity, credit/debit card, or bank transfer. It adds up to so much happiness when we give together. Giving online allows you to easily renew your pledge each year.
