Re-Post: Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Online Pledge System Eliminates Paper Pledge Forms, Protects Your Private Information

PRINT  |  E-MAIL

We are re-posting this 2017 ALCOAST to remind you that Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) contributions are now managed via the CFC Donor Pledging System (https://cfcgiving.opm.gov/welcome). 

ALCOAST 340/17
COMDTNOTE 5298

SUBJ: IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR CFC ALLOTMENTS

1. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has implemented a new Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Donor Pledging System for use across the Federal government (https://cfcgiving.opm.gov/welcome). The system allows donors to find charities and make contributions online through payroll deductions, credit/debit card, funds transfer from a bank account, and commitments to volunteer. The system will transmit payroll deduction requests directly to our civilian employee payroll provider (the National Finance Center (NFC)) or military payroll provider (Pay and Personnel Center (PPC)).

2. In the past, civilian employees and military members electing payroll deductions completed paper or electronic forms containing sensitive personnel information. Those forms were then emailed (or printed and mailed) for processing. In addition to increasing the risk of personal information spillage, the process was labor intensive. The advent of a new donor system reduces paperwork and removes a number of risks associated with the printing, mailing, and emailing of sensitive personnel information.

3. Everyone choosing to give is strongly encouraged to use OPM's CFC Donor Pledging System to keep your sensitive personnel information between you and your payroll provider or designated financial institution.

4. The process entails setting up an account, which should only take a few minutes. Users are reporting some delays in receiving a verification PIN from CFC. Please check your spam or junk email folders if you did not receive a verification PIN after attempting to sign-up for an online donor account. If you have any questions or need additional assistance with the CFC Donor Pledging System, visit https://cfcgiving.opm.gov/contact or call (800) 797-0098/(608) 237-4898.

5. If you choose to make a payroll contribution by completing forms outside of the established OPM system, please follow the guidelines provided by your local CFC Campaign manager. Print and submit your completed pledge directly to your department or agency’s Campaign Manager. Alternatively, forms can be mailed directly to the CFC Processing Center at P.O. Box 7820, Madison, WI 53707-7820.

6. Visit https://cfcgiving.opm.gov/faq for questions about the CFC Donor Pledging System. Additional information regarding changes to CFC can be found at https://www.chcoc.gov/content/2017-combined-federal-campaign.

7. Thank you to PPC and COMDTs (CG-631) and (CG-1B1) for their exceptional efforts to keep military payroll allotments available to members.
