TRACKING PROGRESS TO OUR CFC 2014 $1 MILLION GOAL!
As of week ending January 23, 2015, more than $910,000 has been pledged by Federal employees in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts to their favorite charities through the Combined Federal Campaign. Of that total, approximately 38% was pledged by Federal donors using one of the online giving programs we offer (CFC Nexus, MyPay and/or CFC-EEX).
Campaigns across the country are encouraging donors to give on line. It's fast, easy, convenient, and confidential and it saves on the cost of processing paper pledges.
OPM encourages online giving, too. In fact, there will soon come a time when paper pledges will no longer be provided.
Have you made your 2014 pledge yet?
If not, paper pledges will be accepted, but ONLY until January 30. Please see your Federal agency (or military unit) CFC coordinator to make a paper pledge OR call the CFC office at 401/942-2394 for information or assistance in pledging.
All online giving programs are closed for Campaign 2014.
