This CFC, Remember Native American Students
Workplace giving is a significant factor in support of our work. Since 2011, we have been approved as a national charity for participation in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Currently listed under our program name, American Indian Education Fund, our CFC number is CFC charity code # 54766.
The CFC, known as “the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign,” is the federal government’s answer to workplace giving and support for philanthropy. Annually, the CFC runs hundreds of organized campaigns to reach thousands of federal workers and raise millions of dollars for nonprofits. The total CFC effort helps postal, military, and Federal civilian workers, nationally and globally, to pledge payroll deductions for nonprofits providing health and human services.
Only some charities can participate in the CFC. Only after completing a rigorous application and review process that culminates in approval and selection by the Office of Personnel Management in Washington, DC is a charity deemed eligible and listed on the Best of CFC portal. To quality as a national charity, we must provide detailed documentation on the types of services delivered in at least 15 states, as well as the volume and value of those services and the beneficiaries in each state. This is in addition to meeting all the CFC’s financial and administrative requirements.
We are pleased to be included in the 2021 CFC campaign and that this important effort will help us raise more awareness about the American Indian population we serve and the work we do on remote reservations to help end the cycle of poverty. CFC pledge drives typically run from September to mid-December each year.
In addition to the CFC, our AIEF program is recognized as an Educate America federation charity. If you or your organization are interested in learning more about workplace giving, please call 800-416-8102.
