The 2014 Campaign Calendar is online

After 17 years of service to the Heart of Alabama Combined Federal Campaign, Director Xavier “Lew” Lewis retired on January 31, 2014. Many thanks to Lew for the “fired up” energy, passion and commitment he brought to the CFC for so many years. He will be missed. See Our Tribute

Campaign Snapshot
(Dec. 8) -- As of December 6th the campaign stands at $909,151, a fantastic surge of $158,154 over last week that puts us just $90,849 shy of the $1 million mark! We can break the $1 million mark! I know this campaign. Even though we officially closed on Dec 6th, there are still areas of potential across our campaign.

CFC project officer, SSG Mark Buhl (and his CFC team members) at the USAACE NCO Academy on FT Rucker conducted a chili dog FUNdraiser.

Campaign Extended to Dec. 6th
We are pleased to announce that the Heart of Alabama CFC's board of directors met on Oct 21st and unanimously agreed to extend Campaign 2013 from Fri., Nov 8th to Fri., Dec 6th. The board's action is very timely as many of our campaign's volunteers have asked if there would be an extension.

GOOD NEWS: The government shutdown is over and employees have returned to work. Last week, we emailed our project officers and key workers guidelines about restarting your campaigns. We’ve posted that guidance on Good News.

(Dec.13, 2012) -- It's hard to put a price on the gift of giving, but Heart of Alabama Combined Federal Campaign officials can proudly say that they've raised $1,218,475 for those in need. The sound of party horns and cheers filled the air as a victory and awards celebration was held at the U.S. Army Aviation Museum Dec. 10 to close this year's CFC, and celebrate and honor those who gave to the campaign.


In 2013, the Heart of Alabama CFC and two other campaigns enter the second year of a two-year pilot program to test a donation option called Universal Giving (UG).

Universal Giving (UG) permits donors to pledge to any participating CFC charity no matter where the donor or the charity is geographically located.

Previously, only Local charities specific to our campaign area were available to our donors. Universal Giving makes available more than 39,000 Local charities from areas outside of our campaign. These additional Local charities are members of all the CFC campaigns across the country.

How it works

Universal Giving charities are only listed in available online giving tools. They will not appear in the paper charity list.
In your search results, charities local to our campaign are marked with a Green Heart icon. These charities belong to the Heart of Alabama CFC.
Charities marked with an Orange UG Symbol are local to CFCs outside of our campaign area.

After searching, enter the charity's 5-digit charity code either on your paper pledge form or in the online donation tool, complete the form and submit! It's that easy!

New advanced search options will allow you to view ALL the UG charities (this is the default) or hide the UG charities in searches and lists. In addition, the ability to sort the list by distance from a zip code has been added. Charities that did not submit zip codes will not appear in the zip code distance search results.
