The American Botanical Council, listed under the name Herbal Medicine Institute (Combined Federal Campaign code # 1220), is participating in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) as a member organization of the Independent Charities of America federation.
The CFC is the annual workplace fund-raising drive conducted by federal employees between September 1 and December 15. Each year federal employees and military personnel raise millions of dollars through the CFC to support thousands of non-profit charities. Friends of ABC, who are also federal employees at any level, can support ABC through their local campaign.
The CFC is the only authorized solicitation of employees in the federal workplace on behalf of charitable organizations, and is the largest and most successful workplace fundraiser in the world. The CFC allows federal employees to contribute to organizations of their choice through a single brochure and to make their contributions through cash, check, or payroll deductions.
The campaign's mission is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing every federal employee the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. It also encourages and enables active employee participation in the community, which fosters collaboration with the business and nonprofit sectors to achieve this goal.
