    Watch This Space for Updates.

    The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) received more than 800 comments about the proposed changes to the CFC regulations and there is a Congressional Hearing scheduled for Wednesday, July 26th at 1:30 pm (Approximately 60-90 minutes) in the Rayburn House Office building to “Help Congress Better Understand the Impact of what OPM is proposing for the CFC.”

    If you’re in the DC area, please plan on attending, if you’re in another part of the country or can’t attend, please contact your Representative to let them know the damaging impact the new regulations will have if adopted as proposed. House.gov lists addresses and phone numbers for all Members of Congress by name and by state, if needed.

    To see my complete analysis of the proposed regulations, “Back to the Drawing Board! – An Analysis and Recommended Responses to the Proposed Changes to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Regulations” please go here: Analysis

    I’m including (FYI) in its entirety, below, the letter from the SavetheCFC coalition, organized by America’s Charities.

    Hope to see you at the hearing !!

    We encourage you and others from your organization to attend.

    A large turnout will serve as a testament to the concerns held by many nonprofit organizations. If you plan on attending the hearing, please let us know by emailing Geoff Rixon at GRixon@charities.org. Also, please allow time to go through security and locate the hearing room.

    It is our understanding the hearing is informational in nature and will allow key members of Congress to become familiar with the proposed changes and the nonprofit sector’s concerns about them. The hearing is under the auspices of the Federal Workforce, U.S. Postal Service, and Census Subcommittee chaired by Rep. Blake Farenthold (R., Tex.). It is a subcommittee of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

    Witnesses are being selected by the subcommittee staff, and we are active in the process of making recommendations. We anticipate witnesses will include representatives of impacted charities, a member of the Save the CFC federation coalition, OPM, and perhaps others.

    Following the hearing we will report back to you and let you know what actions to take.

    If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Funnell or Robyn Neal at:

    BFunnell@charities.org or RNeal@charities.org.

    Thank you for helping us keep the CFC viable!
