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.
