How to Make a Compliant CFC Virtual Charity Fair Video:

As part of the continuing effort to connect federal employees and retirees to the impact they can through the CFC and to make CFC charities more visible to the federal community, the CFC hosts a Virtual Charity Fair (VCF) to include videos and stories/photos. Viewers can filter by charity name, cfc number, cause area, charity type (i.e., local, national, or international), and if local, by CFC zone.

  • Submit your videos and/or stories and photos using our VCF Submission Portal.
  • For videos, you will need charity name, web address, 5-digit CFC number, your primary cause area, charity type, video title, video transcript, video thumbnail photo, and the video mp4 file (50MB max size). Videos must be 60-seconds or less, be captioned, and comply with the standards in section 508 of the Rehabilitiation Act.
