Combined Federal Campaign Reference Materials

CFC MEMORANDUM 2007-6

August 2, 2007

TO: LOCAL FEDERAL COORDINATING COMMITTEES AND PRINCIPAL COMBINED FUND ORGANIZATION
FROM: MARK LAMBERT
ACTING DIRECTOR, OFFICE OF CFC OPERATIONS
SUBJECT: Revisions To 2007 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) National Charity List

On July 13, 2007, the U. S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) notified local campaigns that it was in litigation and therefore the printing of the 2007 CFC charity list should be discontinued until further notice. The litigation has been resolved and, in light of its outcome, a decision has been made to admit all organizations to participate in the 2007 CFC that are tax-exempt under 26 U.S.C. 501(c)(3) and to which contributions are tax-deductible pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 170, regardless of whether the organization is classified as a public charity or a private foundation, as long as the applicant organization demonstrated it had met all other eligibility requirements and public accountability standards for admission.

Accordingly, campaigns may resume production of their charity list with the following changes. The National/International part of the CFC National Charity List must include four additional organizations. In addition, two organizations that have ceased to exist must be deleted. The four organizations that must be added are:

  1. The Impact Movement (national independent organization)
  2. National Black United Front Educational Fund (member of National Black United Federation of Charities)
  3. Roger L. Von Amelunxen Foundation (national independent organization)
  4. Stuttering Foundation of America (national independent organization)

The two organizations that must be removed are:

  1. American Foundation for Urologic Disease, Inc. (national independent organization)
  2. International Rett Syndrome Association (member of Health First - America's Charities)

Revised Excel and Word versions of the complete 2007 CFC National Charity List are attached to this memorandum. These versions contain the entire National/International part and International part, including revisions related to the six organizations cited above.

In addition, local campaigns must, to the extent possible given the time constraints of the local campaign timetable, undertake a review of all local organizations that have been denied admittance to the 2007 CFC to determine whether any 501(c)(3) organizations to which contributions are tax-deductible under 26 U.S.C. 170 have been denied solely on the basis of classification as a private foundation. Any such organizations must be notified in writing that they are being accepted for participation in the 2007 campaign and that they will be issued a new 5-digit code and added to the local part of the Charity List. Local campaigns should contact the Office of CFC Operations at cfc@opm.gov to obtain the new 5-digit code for any organizations added to the local part of the Charity List. As for organizations that were denied for more than one reason, one of which was a private foundation classification, the local campaign may want to consider re-issuing the denial letter to reflect that classification as a private foundation is no longer a reason for denial of the 2007 CFC application, but the other reasons for denial still stand.

Please contact your Office of CFC Operations representative if you have any questions regarding these instructions. Thank you for your cooperation on this important matter.

The Office of CFC Operations erroneously omitted three eligible national independent charitable organizations from the 2007 National-International Charity List transmitted to each of the 264 local campaigns for their use in soliciting contributions from federal employees. The 2007 National-International Charity List has been amended to include the following three charitable organizations:

10291 Chromosome 18 Registry and Research Society
10876 Jews for Jesus
