It's that time of the year again! U.S. federal employees and retirees can support the digital freedom movement through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).

The Combined Federal Campaign is the world's largest and most successful annual charity campaign for U.S. federal employees and retirees. Last year, 175 members of the CFC community raised over $34,000 for EFF's lawyers, activists, and technologists fighting for digital freedoms online. But, in a year with many threats popping up to our rights online, we need your support now more than ever.

Giving to EFF through the CFC is easy! Just head over to and use our ID 10437. Once there, click DONATE to give via payroll deduction, credit/debit, or an e-check. If you have a renewing pledge, you can increase your support as well! Scan the QR code below to easily make a pledge or go to!

They ensure that organizations like EFF can continue working towards our goals even during challenging times.

With support from those who pledged through the CFC last year, EFF has:

  • Authored amicus briefs in multiple court cases, leading a federal judge to find that device searches at the U.S. border require a warrant.
  • Forced the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to reverse a decision and stop police from equipping robots with deadly weapons.
  • Made great strides in passing protections for the right to repair your tech, with the combined strength of innovation advocates around the country.
  • Convinced Apple to finally abandon its device-scanning plan and encrypt iCloud storage for the good of all its customers.

Federal employees and retirees have a tremendous impact on the shape of our democracy and the future of civil liberties and human rights online. Support EFF’s work by using our CFC ID 10437 when you make a pledge today!
