About the Campus Charitable Fund Drive (CCFD)

The Campus Charitable Fund Drive (CCFD) is the only annual, combined charitable giving campaign for the employees at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Through the eight-week CCFD, university employees can help improve the lives of people in our community and around the world. CCFD gives university employees precise control over where their contributions are spent. Whether you want to help alleviate poverty and hunger, preserve a natural area, fight discrimination, prevent child abuse, or cure a deadly disease, there is a nonprofit working to see these goals become reality.

Contributions from U of I employees on the Urbana-Champaign campus, retirees and Foundation employees help support eleven umbrella agencies and around 700 other non-profit organizations. In previous years, U of I employees and retirees contributed more than $1.3 million.

The Drive would not be possible without the efforts of our section and unit leaders who represent every unit on campus. They attend trainings, come to CCFD events throughout the campaign and rally the employees in their departments to give generously.

CCFD is operated parallel with the dates for the State Employee Combined Appeal (SECA). CCFD is coordinated by the Chancellor’s Office at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
