As the solicitations proliferated and with continued dissatisfaction with a lack of uniform policy in workplace fundraising, Philip Young, the President's Advisor on Personnel Management, who also acted as Chairman of the Civil Service Commission (CSC), initiated a study of the problem.This 2-year effort (1954-56) involved extensive discussions with leaders of charitable organizations and managers throughout the federal establishment. 2 were issued, identifying the charitable organizations recognized for on-the-job solicitations and designating the times of the year during which their solicitations could take place.The first participating charitable organizations were: President Eisenhower further formalized the administration of the program by Executive Order 10728 of September 6, 1957.The Executive Order placed it under the supervision of a Presidential Committee, staffed by the Civil Service Commission.New CFC Regulations The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
This was a giant step in simplifying and systematizing fundraising in the federal service.In June 1956, President Eisenhower formally charged the President's Advisor on Personnel Management with responsibility for the development and administration of a uniform policy and program for fundraising within the federal service. General guidelines were issued for the conduct of campaigns, and an Eligibility Standards Committee was established.The Committee's eligibility criteria formed the basis for identifying charitable organizations recognized for solicitation during 1958 and later years.By 1971 all campaigns had become "combined." President Nixon announced on March 3, 1971, that the CFC would be the uniform fundraising method for the federal service.Another major change at the time was the introduction of payroll deduction as a form of charitable contribution.
