Support the American Legion Child Welfare Foundation through the United Way and Combined Federal Campaigns
Federal employees can contribute automatically through the Combined Federal Campaign at their place of employment. The CFC Code number of the American Legion Child Welfare Foundation is #10286.
If you choose to contribute through the CFC, the Foundation suggests that you forward a copy of your donation information to our office in Indianapolis to receive proper credit for your contribution. Too often the Foundation receives a check from the CFC with no donor information included (name or address). When this occurs we are unable to acknowledge your gift.
The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (September 1st to December 15th) support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world.
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. 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.
