Combined Federal Campaign

Evaluation & Certification


Live Laugh Love Give, Inc. is an authorized national and international nonprofit in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). This means we have been reviewed by the United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM), audited by an independent auditing firm, and examined and approved by one or more CFC Federal evaluation committees.

The CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with almost 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and overseas raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (September 1st to December 15th) support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. The Director of OPM has designated responsibility for day-to-day management of the program and to its CFC office.

Established in 1961, the CFC is a program that enables certain carefully screened and approved charitable organizations to solicit contributions from employees of the Federal Government of the United States.

By law it is the only campaign authorized to solicit for and collect charitable contributions from U.S. federal employees, including civil servants, postal workers, and military personnel.

OPM has plenary authority under 5 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) part 950 to administer the CFC in compliance with legal standards. Public Law (Pub. L.) 100-202 Sec. 101(m), requires OPM to maintain eligibility criteria and public accountability standards for CFC participation by organizations.

OPM starts with eight core standards of eligibility and public accountability and three core administrative requirements a charitable organization must satisfy in order to participate and continue in the CFC. These standards require certifications, documentation, audit, and an annual report to demonstrate compliance.

The CFC mission is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
