New regulations published this week by the Office of Personnel Management aim to overhaul the Combined Federal Campaign, in part by eliminating cash donations in favor of online giving and requiring charities to pay fees to cover the administrative costs of the program. But some charity groups say OPM's regulations are too focused on wringing more efficiencies out of the annual fundraising drive instead of on re-energizing a workplace-giving program that has seen declining donations in recent years.
The Office of Personnel Management published a final rule to amend the of regulations of the Combined Federal Campaign. The changes make it easier for federal employees to contribute to the charities of their choice and increase transparency of the donor process.
Sequestration, pay freezes and furloughs appear to have taken a toll on the 2013 Combined Federal Campaign. Figures published by the Office of Personnel Management show Donations fell 19 percent compared to a year earlier. Marshall Strauss, CEO of the Workplace Giving Alliance, was a member of a task force on the CFC.
OPM Acting Director Elaine Kaplan extends the Combined Federal Campaign one month, to Jan. 15, 2014, giving feds more time to contribute to their favorite charities.
The Office of Personnel Management's proposed changes to the Combined Federal Campaign, the annual federal fundraising drive, are getting a frosty reception from local charities. OPM wants to do away with the local volunteer coordinating committees and put in place a set of more centralized regional committees established by OPM. It also wants to require charities to pay an application fee and eliminate cash and check donations in favor of electronic donations. However, some charities say the proposed changes would likely lead to fewer charities joining the program -- and fewer total donations.

The report spelled out a number of recommendations for the Combined Federal Campaign in four areas including revising the infrastructure and updating oversight. The Office of Personnel Management called for the commission as the CFC effort turned 50.
Working group suggests CFC managers codify a ban on expenses for meals, beverages and entertainment. The recommendations follow an inspector general report that questioned more than $700,000 in spending, including a jazz band and chair massages.
Office of Personnel Management Director John Berry issued a directive today claiming his agency never approved thousands of dollars in questionable meals and entertainment expenses incurred by the Combined Federal Campaign. Earlier this month, OPM's Inspector General's Office reported that CFC had charged for box seats at a Washington Nationals event, chair massages and other expenses.
