21 Frequently Asked Questions

22 How can I be sure my contribution got to the agency I designated? Check the “Please release my name...” box on the pledge card and the agency should send you a thank you notice. OPM Regulations require a Financial Audit by a CPA firm for campaigns over one million dollars to ensure all financial transactions are completed and accurate. OPM Regulations require an annual Compliance Audit to ensure the campaign is conducted in accordance with Congressional guidelines.

23 Do I have to put my social security number on the CFC pledge form? Yes: if you are planning to use the payroll deduction section of the pledge form. USPS Employees can use their Employee Identification Number. No: if you are donating by cash or check.
