Support the MRC through CFC and workplace giving

The funds that the Media Research Center receives from workplace contributions do make a difference! If you are a federal or state government employee, if you participate in a United Way campaign, or if your company conducts its own giving campaign, then designating the MRC to receive your workplace contributions is another way that you can help create a media culture in America where truth and liberty flourish.

What is CFC?
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the annual fundraising drive conducted by Federal employees in their workplace each fall. Last year, Federal employees and military personnel raised $268.5 million through the CFC that benefits thousands of not-for-profit charities. CFC is organized into more than 300 independent geographic campaigns.

CFC Mission
To promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all Federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.

CFC Background
Federal workers have participated in a national workplace giving effort for about 40 years. President Kennedy initiated a formal national giving program for Federal workers in 1961. Since then, the CFC has evolved into the nation’s leading workplace giving program. No other annual employee-giving program raises as much money for charity.

Office of CFC Operations at OPM
The Office of CFC Operations at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is responsible for oversight of the national program. The Office of CFC Operations is located at 1900 "E" Street, NW, Room 5450, Washington, DC 20415. (202) 606-2564, Fax (202) 606-5056. Mara Patermaster is director of OCFCO.

United Way of the National Capital Area

For almost 30 years, UWNCA has been a recognized leader in community building in the Washington area. UWNCA was founded in 1974 when the United Givers Fund, the Health and Welfare Council, and the United Black Fund merged, creating the 23rd largest United Way in the nation. By 1980, UWNCA became the first United Way to include nationally known nonprofits, such as the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society, in its annual fundraising campaign.

Today, UWNCA coordinates one of the largest annual fundraising campaigns in the country. The campaign disperses millions in monies to more than 900 nonprofit partners that provide health and human programs to Washington area residents. The campaign also includes nine Community Impact Funds, which work to solve complex social issues by directing funds to the most critical areas of need.

Q: Is my gift tax deductible?

A: Yes; in most cases you must have a receipt for your donation to meet IRS requirements. If you donate to United Way via payroll deduction, keep your pay stubs as your receipts. If you make a one-time donation of $250 or more, you'll receive a tax receipt letter from United Way reflecting the amount of your gift. See your Campaign Coordinator for more details.
