For more than five decades, the U.S. government has sponsored the Combined Federal Campaign – the world’s largest workplace fundraising drive.
Each fall, beginning in September, federal employees – civilian, military and postal – are invited to support eligible national and local charities.
Almost one million employees pledge about a quarter billion dollars each year. Employees choose the groups they wish to support from a list of charities that have submitted applications and been deemed qualified by the CFC. More than 2,500 national organizations and 22,000 local organizations qualify for the Campaign annually.
Donors may give once or request that a specific amount be withheld from their paychecks throughout the following calendar year. Employees overwhelmingly select the ongoing payroll deduction program. We would love your support!
Haiti Outreach qualified for the CFC and is a part of the Village-by-Village campaign.

Haiti Outreach’s vision is for Haiti to become a developed country, with clean water, proper sanitation, adequate food and medical care, basic infrastructure like good roads and electricity, and education and economic opportunities for everyone. Our focus is on water and sanitation, and we have helped build several public schools in the central plateau area surrounding Pignon, Haiti.
Haiti Outreach’s mission is to collaborate with the people of Haiti to build and maintain community-initiated projects that advance the development of the country.
Haiti Outreach’s work is distinguished by the following:
- We collaborate with the people of Haiti. We work with neighbors, community groups, local government and the national government in rural Haiti and populated areas.
- We build and maintain projects. A crucial aspect of our projects is that they are created to be sustainable on a long term basis
- Our projects are community-initiated. The community comes to us with a written letter requesting our assistance. Community participation and responsibility continues through the entire life of the project.
