Nonprofits invited to participate in 2014 federal campaign
Starting Monday, Feb 24, United Way of Cascade County will begin accepting applications from nonprofit organizations that want to participate in the fall 2014 Montana Combined Federal Campaign.
The Combined Federal Campaign is the only authorized charitable fundraising campaign for federal employees. President John F. Kennedy created the CFC in 1961. Last year, federal employees in Montana donated roughly $470,000 to local, national and international nonprofits.
This year, United Way of Cascade County is administering the campaign for all Montana's federal employees. The change to one central administration will reduce costs and make it easier for nonprofits because they will only need to apply once to be included in all federal campaigns for the state.
Each fall, federal employees choose nonprofits from a list in the CFC brochure to designate donations given through their workplace. To be included in the brochure, nonprofits must apply and meet eligibility requirements each year.
The deadline to apply is 5 p.m., Monday, March 31. All applicants must be recognized as tax exempt 501 (c)3 by the Internal Revenue Service. Applications may be mailed to:
Montana Combined Federal CampaignPO Box 1343, Great Falls, MT 59403
For more information or to request an application, call United Way of Cascade County Chief Development Officer Lewis Card at 727-3400 or email email@example.com.
