Late breaking news - Update on Proposed Changes to CFC Regulations:
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) received more than 800 comments about the proposed changes to the CFC regulations and there is a Congressional Hearing scheduled for Wednesday, July 26th at 1:30 pm in the Rayburn House Office building to “Help Congress Better Understand the Impact of what OPM is proposing for the CFC.”
If you’re in the DC area, please plan on attending, if you’re in another part of the country or can’t attend, please contact your Representative to let them know the damaging impact the new regulations will have if adopted as proposed. House.gov lists addresses and phone numbers for all Members of Congress by name and by state, if needed.
To see my complete analysis of the proposed regulations, “Back to the Drawing Board! - An Analysis and Recommended Responses to the Proposed Changes to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Regulations” please go here:

Hope to see you there!

|Thank you for your great support to Save the CFC. Many of you responded and submitted comments to the Federal Register and to OPM and have worked with us to connect with key members of Congress. This combined effort resulted in nearly 800 comments entered into the public record and almost 20 key visits to Congressional offices.We are pleased to announce that your work, along with our partner federations, to Save the CFC has resulted in a Congressional Hearing scheduled for June 26, 2013.
Hearing Date: June 26, 2013
Hearing Subject: To help Congress “better understand the impact” of what OPM is proposing for the CFC
Location: Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2154
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Duration: Approximately 60-90 minutes
We encourage you and others from your organization to attend.
A large turnout will serve as a testament to the concerns held by many nonprofit organizations. If you plan on attending the hearing, please let us know by emailing Geoff Rixon at GRixon@charities.org. Also, please allow time to go through security and locate the hearing room.
It is our understanding the hearing is informational in nature and will allow key members of Congress to become familiar with the proposed changes and the nonprofit sector’s concerns about them. The hearing is under the auspices of the Federal Workforce, U.S. Postal Service, and Census Subcommittee chaired by Rep. Blake Farenthold (R., Tex.). It is a subcommittee of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Witnesses are being selected by the subcommittee staff, and we are active in the process of making recommendations. We anticipate witnesses will include representatives of impacted charities, a member of the Save the CFC federation coalition, OPM, and perhaps others.
Following the hearing we will report back to you and let you know what actions to take.
If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Funnell at BFunnell@charities.org or Robyn Neal at RNeal@charities.org.
Thank you for helping us keep the CFC viable!

The Combined Federal Campaign just released the results from the 2008 non-profit fundraising campaign. The total amount pledged by Federal public servants to thousands of local, national and international non-profits was $275,898,756 which was a 1% increase over the 2007 total of $273,271,290.
The CFC is one of the few fundraising resources that did not report dramatic declines during the fall’s economic pressures.
