The ATF Association (ATFA) was established in 2007.  Its purpose is to bring together former and current ATF colleagues for fellowship and friendship, assist with post-ATF career planning and development, and to provide support in a time of need.  In honor of the many ATF employees that have died or sustained serious injuries in fulfilling the ATF mission, the Association is committed to the support of members of the ATF Family who have experienced severe trauma or financial need and to keep the memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice forever in our consciousness.

Members of the Association include Special Agents, Industry Operations Inspectors and Investigators, Explosive Enforcement Officers, Chemists, Scientists, Attorneys and other personnel who supported the ATF mission.

The Association was created under section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)

Dear Annuitant,
Before you or your family member completed a career in public service, you may have become familiar with the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) as a way to support charities locally, nationally and internationally. However, at the end of your career, it was not easy to contribute to your favorite charities through the CFC program. Now as a Federal Retiree, you can easily support the charity or charities of your choice.
Last year, we introduced important changes to modernize the CFC program. One of those changes gave retirees and survivors the opportunity to have convenient options of contributing directly through the CFC, including through monthly annuities!
This year's campaign theme is Show Some Love. Federal retirees and survivors can support any number of almost 8,000 charities vetted and approved to participate in the CFC campaign. Last year, Federal employees and retirees pledged more than $100 million in monetary pledges. These pledges help people and communities in need and are a reflection of the generous nature of the Federal community.
To help those in need by pledging, please visit the CFC's Online Donor Pledging System .

The ATFA is in the process of asking for approval from the CFC to be vetted and approved as a participant in the annual CFC.
