Charity Qualifications & Materials
CFC Charities are organizations with status as tax-exempt charities as determined by the Internal Revenue Service under 501(c)(3) of Title 26 of the United States Code that provide health and human services and that are determined to be eligible for participation in the CFC. Organizations may apply and be listed in the CFC brochure as either a local, national or an international unaffiliated organization or as a member of a local, national or international federation.
Charities that apply to receive funds through the CFC are required to submit to extensive review of their financial and governance practices prior to acceptance. This eligibility review has helped set standards for participation in giving initiatives that transcend the community.
Deadlines for national and international affiliated and unaffiliated organizations are determined by the Office of CFC Operations. Check the Calendar of Events for exact dates. Local campaigns determine their deadlines. Go to the Campaign Locator to contact a local campaign for more information.
