CFC deadline extended; more time to donate

The Combined Federal Campaign has announced that it has extended its deadline for federal employees to donate time or money to charity.

The solicitation period for 2018 was Sept. 10, 2018 through Jan. 11, 2019, but the partial government shutdown interrupted the giving event as the cash donations are made directly from employees’ payroll; the event will now go through Feb. 22, 2019, according the Office of Personnel Management website.

Charities will still receive their cash gifts as scheduled on April 1, 2019, and payroll deductions for these gifts will begin in the next available pay period after the extension ends.

The charity application deadline was also extended until Feb. 22.

It use to be the agencies would push for their employees to contribute to the charities of their choice. It was fun and we invited the charites to our offices. But now it's as if they have just forgotten about the people who are in need. We need to bring back that big kick off and let the people know we are still here for them. By the way I still contribute no matter what. I am most fortunate.

Our agency stopped CFC back in December as it does every year.
