You may NOT set a personal dollar goal. You may NOT set a 100% participation goal. Supervisor may NOT solicit employees. Do NOT display or use lists of donors or non- donors. NO promoting one agency over another – Let the contributor choose the agency that will receive his or her gift.
DON’T DO IT! It is not coercion when you ask people to participate and then give them a chance to think about it. Do not say you expect 100% participation. True voluntary giving is fundamental to Federal fund raising. Coercion is Forbidden in the CFC.
Emphasize purpose of CFC Advertise Benefits of giving THRU CFC Address “Concerns” of the Individual Provide Convenient Opportunity to Give Publicize, Publicize, Publicize!!! Emphasize use of On-Line option to benefit campaign –
Your donation goes to whichever participating agency you choose or if you do not choose an agency it will be undesignated. Undesignated donations will be distributed to agencies in proportion to their total designated gifts Confidential Donations: This option is available to interested donors – Pledge card should be placed in a sealed envelope and be sure to check the box on front of the Report & Contribution Packet.
What is it? In 2012, GOP campaign and two others are testing a new donation option called Universal Giving (UG). UG permits donors to pledge to any participating CFC charity no matter where the donors or the charity is geographically located. Previously, only National, International, and Local charities in our campaign's area were available to our donors. Universal Giving now makes all Local agencies in all CFC regions accessible as well. Thus, donors who wish to stay involved with a favored charity or charities elsewhere may do so through UG. How does Universal Giving work? Universal Giving charities will only be listed in available on-line giving tools, and not in the paper charity list. If you wish to donate to a local charity elsewhere, log in to our on-line giving tool at to search for the charity you want to support. Enter the charity’s 5- digit charity code either on your paper pledge form or in the on- line donation tool, complete the form and submit! It’s that easy!
Only listed via on-line search tool Multiple Search Options Taxonomy, National, International, Zip Code, etc Icon represents affiliation (L, N, I, UG) Pledging exactly the same – paper/on-line On-line more efficient
Able to support agencies ANYWHERE in the world! Donations can support local agencies when deployed/stationed away from home Increased donation options – ALL approved agencies from ANY CFC eligible for designation Through Universal Giving, any donor in any campaign can donate to ANY approved CFC agency worldwide!
Convenience: pledging online allows you to complete your pledge thru CFC from the privacy and comfort of your computer. Searching: finding charities of interest is easy through the interactive search tool. Search, sort, and filter charities to find the ones that deserve your dollars. You can even research through charity websites while you are creating your pledge. Math is made simple: enter the amount per pay period and decide how much of your total annual donation goes to each charity. Accessibility: log in to your CFC Nexus account at any time to view, print, or pledges you have made in the past. This is convenient for the tax season. Replication: as a returning donor you may simply replicate your previous year’s pledge. It’s green: pledging online means fewer pledge cards and charity catalogs need to be printed. Efficiency: because your online pledge card is fully legible, with perfect math, and designated to the charities you decide, the CFC and payroll centers time for each pledge is greatly reduced. Reporting: you can check the reports page to see how your Federal agency compares to others and contributes to the overall campaign.
Local, National, and International agencies listed – UG available on-line To donate to a agency they must be approved and in the brochure Make brochures available to every potential donor along with their pledge card. Searchable version also available at
