    CFC Memorandum 2004-09

    June 30, 2004

    SUBJECT: 2004 CFC National/International List

    We are pleased to make available the 2004 Combined Federal Campaign National list. As always, unless we notify you of any changes to the contrary, this list must be reproduced exactly in your local campaign brochure and on the Federal agency's electronic information system, if available.

    The list is being provided on our website in two formats — Microsoft Word 7.0 and Excel 7.0. In addition, we are making available a Table of Contents, alphabetical and numerical indexes and a version of the National list without the 25 word description for use by smaller campaigns.

    List Order

    The CFC regulations require that the categories of charities be rotated annually. This year the order is: 1) National/International Organizations, 2) International Organizations, and 3) Local Organizations. The order of these categories and order of federations in each category cannot be altered by campaigns.

    The National list provided by OPM consists of two types of organizations. Organizations that provide services that are either National and/or International in scope and those that are defined only as International in scope. National Unaffiliated Organizations (those that are not part of a federation) are listed in the National section unless they specifically noted in their 2004 CFC application that they wished to be included in the International section.

    Changes to the Preface and Introduction

    The Preface and Introduction must be reproduced exactly in your local campaign brochure and on the Federal agency's electronic information system, if available.

    This section has been significantly modified from previous years. At the request of campaigns, OPM has reduced the text and referred the reader to the OPM website for additional information. Also, language on administrative and fundraising rates that exceed 25% has been revised to acknowledge that a variety of circumstances may impact the rate and inform the donor that s/he should contact the charity for additional information on its rate (see below).

    Index and Table of Contents

    • Index: To assist donors in their search for an organization we encourage you to add an alphabetical index of the participating organizations in the campaign brochure either in the back or front of the brochure. Alphabetical and numerical indexes for the National list will be available on the CFC website.

    • Table of Contents: The use of a Table of Contents is strongly encouraged. The Table of Contents reflects the official order of the categories of organizations, and must not be altered.

    • Small Campaigns: We have included a version of the National list without 25-word statements. This format may be used by campaigns that received less than $100,000 in contributions in the 2003 CFC. These campaigns are also exempt from publishing an index.

    Special Features

    • Where applicable, charities using a name other than their legal name must list their legal name in parenthesis, following the Internet address. The entry must also have, where applicable, the Employer Identification Number. Keep in mind that churches and religious organizations will not have an EIN. Also, some organizations covered under an umbrella organization's tax exemption status may not list the EIN.

    • Each participating organization may only appear once in the local brochure (i.e. organizations on the National list may not also appear on the Local list). However, listing of a national parent organization and its local affiliate is permitted, provided it is separately incorporated and has met all local eligibility criteria.

    • Organizations on the National list cannot convert to the Local list, even if the national organization would otherwise qualify as a local organization.

    • Organizations with an asterisk (*) next to their names have been found eligible even though their administrative and fundraising expenses were in excess of 25 percent of their total support and revenue. OPM determined eligibility based upon case-by-case assessments. The asterisk shall be explained in the brochure as follows:

      * This organization has administrative and fundraising expenses above 25 percent and has provided OPM with a satisfactory explanation for and a plan to reduce these expenses below the 25 percent level. Because a variety of circumstances can affect an organization's administrative and fundraising expense rate, donors should contact the organization directly if they wish to receive more information.

    • All lists must be compiled in a single brochure.

    The complete content of the CFC brochure must be made available to all Federal employees in either paper or electronic formats. Electronic formats must be consistent with the 2004 listing provided by OPM.

    Please note that the National list will only be available for downloading on the CFC website.

    If you have questions about accessing this list or any problems associated with the format, please email Valinda Pittman at She will be happy to assist you.

    Best wishes for a successful campaign!
