Annual charity donation drive suspended indefinitely

The 2013 Combined Federal Campaign charity drive has been suspended indefinitely for the DOD. Civilians and service members may still donate via MyPay, though no outreach will be performed.

LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va. — The annual Combined Federal Campaign, responsible for raising $258.3 million for charities in 2012, has been suspended across the Department of Defense due to the partial government shutdown.

Susan Yarwood, the director of the DOD’s CFC campaign said in a memorandum that a legal review of the charity drive found it to be inappropriate and not an excepted activity. Employees may still initiate a donation through the MyPay accounting system, where other allotments and retirement contributions are controlled individually.

The DOD began its drive days before the partial federal shutdown began. No public fundraising activities or promotion of the CFC will be allowed in the Continental United States until a continuing resolution or federal budget funding government activities is approved, the memo said.
“We look forward to a quick return and the resumption of a vigorous campaign to help those people who rely upon local, national and international charities,” the memo stated.

The DOD runs CFC publicity with several echelons of volunteer support staff, who organize by service, command and base level one-on-one contact. Nearly every work center in nationwide has a volunteer CFC representative assigned to it. They are charged with providing coworkers with materials needed to make contributions to nonprofit charities, which register with the CFC.

Federal, postal and military service members are eligible to contribute to the CFC. Size, frequency and specific charity are selected by the contributing individual, benefiting local, national and international charities.
