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. Here's how the CFC works for 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.
Our favorite giving option, the online pledge portal allows you to easily renew your pledge each year and offers the full range of pledge options:
- Annuity deduction (the most popular option)
- Credit/debit card
- E-check/bank transfer
Need to make a required minimum distribution from your retirement account? We can help with that, too! Paper pledge forms are also available and can be mailed directly to the CFC Processing Center: CFC Processing Center, P.O. Box 7820 Madison, WI 53707-7820.
3. Change the world.
Thanks to your continued generosity, CFC charities will make a difference in our local communities, across the nation, and around the world.
