CFC payroll pledge = 26 pay periods First deduction for the 2014 CFC will be effective: pay period beginning January 11, 2015 and ending January 24, 2015, with payday on January 30, 2015 Remind your contacts to check their pay stubs to ensure their CFC pledge is accurate About payroll deduction pledges
Notes on myPay 25www.cfcnca.org You can select up to 30 charities in myPay (29 if there are “undesignated” funds remaining) Employees must enter a.gov address Donors will receive an receipt for their myPay pledge
Challenges with myPay 26www.cfcnca.org 1.There is no ability to start a pledge and save it for later. myPay times out after 20 minutes. Incomplete pledges will be lost and donors will need to start again. 2.Once a pledge is completed the donor cannot re-open the myPay pledge to make changes. All changes have to be made through your IC’s benefits/payroll liaison found at 3.The following charities are participating in the campaign but are not available in myPay: -WAMU 88.5-American Cancer Society Inc. -American Heart Association, Mid-Atlantic Affiliate-MDA, Mid-Atlantic Division -Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue Inc. -Wildlife Biology Institute -Lexington Park Volunteer Rescue Squad, Inc.-Mid Atlantic English Springer Spaniel Rescue -NASA COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP FUND INC -WOUNDED WARRIOR FAMILY FOUNDATION -ACTION FOR HOPE USA
Debit and credit pledges New users must register prior to pledging Those who used CFCNexus last year will already be registered Tools to recover username and password Past pledging information will be available Payroll deduction option is no longer available—must use MyPay All NIH Institutes and Centers are listed—users must select from drop-down menu Upgrades from last year make CFCNexus easier to use
Choose from one-time or reoccurring One-time gifts are made the day the donor enters the pledge in CFCNexus Reoccurring gifts begin the first billing period in January 2015 and continue for 12 periods About credit and debit pledges 29www.cfcnca.org

Objective: thank everyone who made a pledge and recognize Eagle Donors Challenge: online donations are completely confidential, and campaign workers have no access to that information Solution: thank everyone for considering participating in the campaign ask each of your contacts if they know about the Eagle Award, explaining that it is for those who give 1% or 2% or more through the CFC and that Eagle givers should tell you, the Keyworker we have special thank you cards and lapel pins for Eagle donors. many charities send thank you messages to their CFC donors Saying thank you
