2012 Goals

  • Make 100% Face-to Face contact with every Federal Employee.

  • Promote E-Pledging (on-line). (e-pledging website)


§ 950.102

  • The CFC is the only authorized solicitation of employees in the Federal workplace on behalf of charitable organizations. The campaign is intended to reduce disruptions in the workplace by consolidating all approved solicitations into a single, annual, officially supported campaign.

  • Contractor personnel, credit union employees and other persons present on Federal premises, as well as retired Federal employees, may make single contributions to the CFC through checks, money orders, or cash. These non-Federal personnel may not be solicited, but donations offered by such persons may be accepted by the local campaigns.

    Code of Federal Regulations


    DoD Inst NUMBER 5035.01 January 31, 2008


Regulations cont d
Regulations (cont’d)

§ 950.602   Solicitation methods.

(a) Employee solicitations shall be conducted during duty hours using methods that permit true voluntary giving and shall reserve to the individual the option of disclosing any gift or keeping it confidential.

Campaign kick-offs, victory events, awards, and other non-solicitation events to build support for the CFC are encouraged.

(b) Special CFC fundraising events, such as raffles, lotteries, auctions, bake sales, carnivals, athletic events, or other activities not specifically provided for in these regulations are permitted during the campaign period if approved by the appropriate agency head or government official, consistent with agency ethics regulations. Chances to win must be disassociated from amount of contributions, if any. Raffle prizes should be modest in nature and value. (Note: Raffles and lotteries are illegal in Hawaii)

(c) In all approved special fundraising events the donor must have the option of designating to a specific participating organization or federation or be advised that the donation will be counted as an undesignated contribution and distributed according to these regulations.

Regulations cont d1
Regulations (cont’d)

950.108   Preventing coercive activity.

(a) Solicitation of employees by their supervisor or by any individual in their supervisory chain of command. This does not prohibit the head of an agency to perform the usual activities associated with the campaign kick-off and to demonstrate his or her support of the CFC in employee newsletters or other routine communications with the Federal employees.

(b) Supervisory inquiries about whether an employee chose to participate or not to participate or the amount of an employee's donation. Supervisors may be given nothing more than summary information about the major units that they supervise.

(c) Setting of 100 percent participation goals.

(d) Establishing personal dollar goals and quotas.

(e) Developing and using lists of non-contributors.

(g) Using as a factor in a supervisor's performance appraisal the results of the solicitation in the supervisor's unit or organization.
