OPM has opened through June 30 a special solicitation period in the Combined Federal Campaign to support charities providing humanitarian relief in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
“By reactivating the CFC, OPM encourages federal workers, members of the military, and postal employees to provide emergency assistance that will contribute toward the health and stability of charities and the people who rely upon them for critical help at this time,” OPM said. “Millions of Ukrainians, especially vulnerable populations, are in great need. Many of these individuals are unable to access clean water, food, shelter, and medical care.”
All contributions will go to charities with no distribution fee, it added.
While donations through the CFC typically are designated during the annual solicitation in the fall, special solicitations are conducted at times for relief from natural disasters and other reasons. Employees who are making ongoing donations through the program can make additional donations, while those who are not participating still can make donations through the special solicitation.
Donations can be made through cfcgiving.opm.gov or the CFC app.
