The pledge period for the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is underway and EFF needs your help! Last year, U.S. government employees raised over $19,000 for EFF through the CFC, helping us fight for privacy, free speech, and security on the Internet so that we can help create a better digital future.

The Combined Federal Campaign is the world's largest and most successful annual charity campaign for U.S. federal employees and retirees. Since its inception in 1961, the CFC fundraiser has raised more than $8.4 billion for local, national, and international charities. This year's campaign runs from September 21 to January 15, 2021. Be sure to make your pledge before the campaign ends!

U.S. government employees can give to EFF by going to and clicking DONATE to give via payroll deduction, credit/debit, or an e-check! Be sure to use our CFC ID #10437. You can also scan the QR code below!

Even though EFF is celebrating its 30th anniversary, we're still fighting hard to protect online privacy, free expression, and innovation. We've made significant steps towards Internet freedom, including leading the call to reject the EARN-IT bill, which threatens to break encryption and undermine free speech online; keeping track of how COVID-19 is affecting digital rights around the world; and we even mobilized over 800 nonprofits and 64,000 individuals to stop the sale of the entire .ORG registry to a private equity firm.

Government employees have a tremendous impact on the shape of our democracy and the future of civil liberties and human rights online. Become an EFF member today by using our CFC ID #10437 when you make a pledge!
