As the CFC heads into its final eight weeks of pledging, the executive director of the local district asks that people keep in mind how important it is to support local, regional, national and international charities that provide programs and services that keep strong the communities where donors live and work.

“If someone’s heart is with an organization based in San Antonio or Honolulu, they have the opportunity through the CFC to support them as well as local charities,” said Susy Himelhoch of the Ohio Combined Federal Campaign, Dayton District. “It’s local and global, as there are more than 8,000 charitable organizations available for donors to support.”

Donors can pledge electronically (fulfilled by payroll deduction or credit/debit) or use a paper pledge form (for payroll deduction or one-time contributions fulfilled by personal check). Paper pledge forms are available from key workers or agency campaign chairs and can be downloaded from Ohio CFC's website: ohiocfc.org. Electronic pledging, including contributions fulfilled by credit/debit, can be made by clicking "Donate" on the website homepage. The pledge site provides a search tool that accesses the entire list of this year's CFC-approved charities.

Use of the system, like participation in CFC, is strictly voluntary. Anyone who wishes to make a one-time gift or use a paper CFC pledge form can do so.

Pledges made to this year’s campaign and fulfilled through payroll allotment will be deducted January through December 2019.

“Please, ‘show some love’ and feel good about making a contribution,” Himelhoch finished. “It’s all about the charities and giving from the heart.”

The local CFC office is located in Bldg. 1, Area A. Through the end of November, the office will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Questions are encouraged. CFC’s main phone number is 937-257-0292.
