Reasons for giving
Reasons for Giving…

  • CONVENIENCE! (i.e., payroll deduction, ePledging)

  • ACCOUNTABILITY - CFC belongs to Federal employees...Board of Directors is composed entirely of local Federal employees who oversee the campaign

  • EFFICIENCY – Southern MS CFC

    • 2010 - 14% overhead (this means 86 cents of every dollar goes directly to charities)

Why encourage payroll deduction giving
Why Encourage payroll deduction giving?

  • It’s EASY- Payroll deduction (PD) is the key to substantial giving

  • Spreads a contribution across the entire year

    • AveragePDgift last year:$268

    • AverageCash/Checkgift last year:$81

Lessons from cfc regulation 5 cfr part 950
Lessons from CFC Regulation (5 CFR Part 950)…


  • Requiring 100% participation

  • Supervisors soliciting their own subordinates

  • Pressuring to give a certain dollar amount

  • Developing a list of non-contributors

  • Coercing employees

Key Elements:

Know your assigned goal

Set a “stretch” goal:

Focus on:

Increasing “participation rate” over last year (25%)

Increasing percent of payroll deduction contributors over last year

Campaign plan continued
Campaign Plan(continued)

Do something different, fun and outside the box…Do a“FUNdraiser”

Doesn’t replace campaign…augments it

You do not want folks giving at a FUNdraiser thinking they are doing their normal gift

Keep your boss in the loop!!Coordinate your plan with your organization’s head or representative…bosses are supportive but don’t like surprises!!
