In the past, the most difficult part of the CFC application process has always been documenting a charity’s services and benefits, especially for a national organization, which had to document its services in at least 15 states. At the CFC’s 2017 application training, the CFC’s Marcus Glasgow talked a lot about how a charity should document its services, responding to many questions.
Charitable Choices emerged out of an effort in the 1980s to open up the world's largest workplace charity drive (the Combined Federal Campaign) to a much greater range of charities. We've always worked to give all charities -- large and small, well-known and unknown, national and local, old and new -- an opportunity to communicate to donors why their work is important. Our website -- which we began in the 1990s -- is an extension of that commitment.
We at Charitable Choices offer all charities a very low-cost way to communicate with lots of potential donors. We allow small charities (annual budgets under $500,000) to be part of our website at half the cost.
We also offer all charities in-depth information about the Combined Federal Campaign at no cost.
