Combined Federal Campaign

Posted By John Baker, Friday, August 09, 2013

Hope you have had a great summer so far.

I'd like to update you on a matter that you might already be aware of. It has been percolating through D.C. for some months now. During this summer recess, if you see your Congressmen around town, you may want to let them know how important the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is to your nonprofit and its clients. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) released proposed regulatory changes to the CFC and congress will be weighing in on these proposed revisions when they return from break in September.

The key proposed changes may include:

  • a new flat application fee for participating charitable nonprofits  
  • restricting giving options to electronic ones (credit, debit); eg: no checks, cash or other financial instruments
  • replacing local management of the CFC with a more centralized/regional management 

The OPM has already collected feedback on the proposed changes that, if approved, would take effect in 2014. The U.S. House of Representatives’ "Oversight and Government Reform Committee” is currently considering the impact of the OPM’s proposed regulation changes.

Have a great rest of the summer! As always, if you’d like to discuss this matter, feel free to contact me.
