CFC Memorandum 2001-03

MEMORANDUM FOR PRINCIPAL COMBINED FUND ORGANIZATIONS (PCFOs)

FROM: MARA T. PATERMASTER, DIRECTOR
OFFICE OF CFC OPERATIONS
SUBJECT: 1) 2000 CFC Results
2) Audit Compliance Guides
3) Model Pledge Card
4) Communications with OPM

1) 2000 CFC Results:

The official results from the 2000 campaign are in, and I am proud to report that the CFC has had another banner year! An estimated 1.4 million federal donors gave a record amount of $224 million to benefit the thousands of charities that participate in the CFC. This year continues a six-year, upward trend in contributions. In addition, the average gift increased to $153 from $144 in 1999.

This information was compiled from the Form 1417 completed by all 369 campaigns this Spring. For further information on the results visit the May 2001 issues of eCLIPS on our website. You can also download detailed charts such as campaign costs, individual campaign reports, and contributions to federations, among others.

Congratulations to everyone who made the 2000 campaign possible!

2) Audit Compliance Guides:

We would like to remind you that the audit compliance guide for the 2000 campaign is due to the Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC) by June 15 and a copy must be sent to OPM by July 29.

The guide can be downloaded from our website. Please note that there is one change to the guide this year: the February 15 requirement for PCFOs to notify charities and federations of their designations was moved to March 15.

We are in the process of revising the compliance guide, but the updated version will not be completed in time for the audits of the 2000 campaign. You should expect to receive it toward the third quarter of calendar 2001.

3) Model Pledge Card:

The 2001 model CFC pledge card is now available for downloading from our website (see the May 2001 issue of eCLIPS). There are no changes to the card this year. However, any changes to the local pledge card must be approved by OPM. We would also like to remind everyone that since the 2000 campaign, donors have the option of providing their email address to designated charities.

4) Communications with OPM:

We have heard positively from many of you regarding our plans to increase our communications with the field through the use of electronic technology. In order to expedite the transmittal of information in the future, the Office of CFC Operations at OPM will begin communicating with you primarily through email and our website in September 2001. To insure that we have your most current email address, please check the PCFO and LFCC lists on our website. Please forward any changes to Curtis Rumbaugh at crrumbau@opm.gov.
