The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) provides an opportunity for federal employees to designate the recipient of the charitable donations they make by payroll deduction. Did you know that there are geological and geophysical organizations that are qualified to receive these donations? The two with which I am most familiar are the Association for Women Geoscientists Foundation (AWGF) and the American Geophysical Union; other organizations in our profession with similar tax status would also qualify.
Federal employees should read the CFC pamphlets carefully. It is my understanding that employees need only to provide the name of the organization and its address. Campaign administrators will do the rest.
