The application period is now open! Head to the CFC's online Charity Application Resources page for all the guidance, tools, and resources available to walk you through the application process. And then visit the Online Application Portal to get started. 

Submit your application by January 31, 2023 to receive a discounted application fee. Applications can be submitted through February 28, 2023, but higher fees will apply.

Important Notes

  1. All organizations must apply each year whether they are required to provide a full application or a verification application.

  2. All organizations must pay the application fee whether they provide a full application or a verification application.

  3. Providing a verification application does not mean your organization has been automatically approved for participation in that campaign.

  4. All approved organizations must pay the listing fee to be included on the CFC Charity List. Listing fees are due prior to the start of the fall campaign. OPM will notify approved charities of the listing fee deadline in the summer.

  5. OPM has provided a detailed memo to assist charities with filing out the Areas of Service portion of the application (the section in which services delivered are documented).
