Federal employees will have at least two more weeks to donate to charity through the Combined Federal Campaign.

Office of Personnel Management Director John Berry on Dec. 12 issued a memo extending the campaign nationwide until Dec. 31. The CFC had been scheduled to end Dec. 15.

In his memo to the local federal coordinating committees and principal combined fund organizations that run the charity drives, Berry said the extension will help the CFC “accommodate end-of-year donations and close the year on a strong note.”

Some campaigns are planning to go even further. The National Capital Area CFC — which covers the Washington area and is the biggest in the country — said on its website that it will accept donations through February. The Washington-area CFC has so far collected $47.3 million — about 76 percent of its $62 million goal.

Berry encouraged all federal employees to attend CFC events, learn more about participating charities, and give to a cause they support.

“All gifts — large and small — are important and make a difference,” Berry said. “Giving to the CFC shows the compassionate values of federal employees, the American people and our great country.”
