What is a Federation? A federation is a group of voluntary charitable human health and welfare organizations established for purposes of supplying common fundraising, administrative, and management services to its members. Each federation is listed with its member organizations as the first organization. If you wish to designate all or some portion of your contribution to a federation, please record that federation's corresponding code number on your pledge card. Contributions designated to a federation will be shared in accordance with the federation's policy. If you wish to designate all or some portion of your contribution to a federation member organization, please record that organizationís corresponding code number on your pledge card.

Unaffiliated or Independent Organizations You may wish to designate to a specific organization or organizations not affiliated with a federation (Independent organizations). If you wish to designate all or some portion of your contribution to an unaffiliated organization, please use that organization's 5-digit code number on your pledge card.

International General Designation Option If you wish your contribution to be distributed proportionately to all international organizations that received designated gifts, you may do so by recording the code letters identified below on your pledge card as IIIII - I request that my gift be shared by all international organizations listed in the "International Section" of the "Agency Listing" in the same proportion that international organizations received designations.

Undesignated Funds You may choose not to designate to a specific independent agency or federation. Funds contributed to the CFC, but not designated to a specific organization or federation, will be distributed to all organizations in the CFC brochure in the same proportion as they received in designations.

Organizations that did not receive any designated dollars, do not receive any portion of undesigated donations.
