How to Pledge

Thank you for choosing to Show Some Love and give through the 2017 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). You may pledge online through the central giving portal or via paper card. We encourage you to utilize the central giving portal as it is the most cost effective and efficient way to process your pledge. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, the paper pledge form process will be phased out over the next five years.


You can access the central giving portal by clicking the "Donate" Button.
