Nonprofits can no longer apply to participate in federal campaign
Check back next February when United Way of Cascade County will accept applications from nonprofit organizations that want to participate in the fall 2015 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.
