To all FEDERAL EMPLOYEES:
In 2014, the Office of Personnel Management was pleased to announce Universal Giving (UG) which gives donors the ability to make a pledge to any of the 24,000+ charities that participate in the 151 CFC regions, regardless of geographic location or campaign region. Donors can search through an online list of all charities that meet the standard for inclusion on the Universal Giving list. Donors can make their pledges by entering the five-digit code on their local campaign region’s pledge form or on their campaign’s electronic giving system, to include Employee Express (EEX) and myPay (where available).
This means that you are no longer limited to donating to the charities listed on your local CFC Charity List. You can now choose from more than 24,000 participating charities throughout the United States and overseas. Each of these organizations has been vetted by Federal employees, so you can be confident that they meet the CFC eligibility requirements and public accountability standards.
