Today, Nonprofit Quarterly published my article on the decline of the CFC. Much of the article’s information and opinions will be familiar to readers of this blog. However, the article adds historical perspective about the CFC and workplace giving in general to data published in WGA’s annual Million Donors Choose reports. It also considers how some private-sector workplace giving initiatives are thriving today even as public sector campaigns decline, and it suggests lessons the CFC might learn from those corporate successes.
OPM released a memo late yesterday announcing the application and listing fees for the 2019 CFC. They are higher than 2018 fees, with increases ranging from zero to 20 percent.
