First, an apology. We have not maintained our flow of posts to the blog ‘cause, to be honest, we are swamped in charity applications. As we have explained, federations like us play a major role in the screening of groups that wish to participate in the next year’s CFC. The application deadline for national and international organizations is approaching fast, so we naturally are fighting the fires right in front of us.
Our blog, Payroll Philanthropy, is sponsored by the Workplace Giving Alliance, a collaboration of a dozen national and local federations. We suspect that many readers actually don’t know what a federation is, so we are going to take a moment to explain.
As we dive further and further into the CFC’s operation, we want to be sure that everyone has a basic grounding in its administrative structure. So, for those relatively new to our little world, we focus now on organizations that allow it to work. Naturally, if you know all this, skip this post, have a cup of coffee and wait for our next essay.
