The 50th anniversary season of the Combined Federal Campaign started Thursday and will continue through Dec. 15, the Office of Personnel Management has announced.

CFC, originally created by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, allows charitable organizations to solicit contributions from employees of the government, enabling federal employees to donate to their charity of choice through their payroll system.

“I’m asking each local CFC to also inspire new and greater numbers of donors, with a new award for the campaigns that show the greatest increase in participation,” OPM John Berry said in a memo. “Let’s make this 50th year an outstanding year—one that marks a new era that will endure for the next fifty years.”

Vice Adm. Matthew Kohler, the top information warfare officer at the U.S. Navy, told C4ISRNET in an interview published Monday that the service considers information warfare as decisive both in daily operations and high-end kinetic fight. “In information warfare, while the rest of the warfare areas are involved in the high-end conflict [eventually], we consider the high-end conflict now. Constant contact with the enemy in terms of cybersecurity, being able to operate within the [electromagnetic spectrum], all of those. We consider ourselves in contact with the adversary now,” Kohler said.

  1. Why would anyone contribute to the Federal Campaign? Everyone hates federal employees. It would just be evidence that I am overpaid, have extra money, and make it clear that my benefits which have already been cut, need cut further. No, I think I would give to any charity before the Federal Campaign.
