Frequently Asked Questions

Donations through CFC, State and Local Campaigns, United Way

If you are trying to determine whether or not your company made a donation on your behalf through these campaigns, please see this related FAQ.

If you sent a gift directly to Focus on the Family and want to verify the donation you made, please call us at (800) A-FAMILY (232-6459).

Donations made electronically

If you made a one-time online donation or give monthly through electronic funds transfer (EFT), you should receive electronic verification. Please call us at (800) A-FAMILY (232-6459) if you aren’t receiving verification of your online donation.

Unfortunately, in almost all cases, we are not able to verify that a company’s donation to Focus on the Family is the direct result of a particular individual’s donation. Most companies send a check to Focus that represents a group of donors.

Additionally, government employees’ privacy is vigorously safeguarded by company policies, which means that donations made through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) – and many other workplace campaigns – are never able to be matched to a specific donor.

As a result, we recommend that you contact your employer to verify that your donation has been matched.

Workplace Campaigns

Workplace campaigns, sometimes called workplace employee charitable fund drives, are charitable solicitation programs conducted at places of employment. Most gifts are made in the form of pledges via automatic payroll deduction, where contributions are deducted from an employee’s paycheck over the course of the next year or, in some cases one-time contributions.

  • Combined Federal Campaign (CFC): Each year federal employees (and retirees) have the opportunity to designate a portion of their earnings to support charities. If you receive a paycheck from the federal government you can choose to support Focus on the Family(#10534) through the CFC.
  • State and Local Campaigns: Many state and local governments provide workplace-giving programs that allow employees to give to charities through payroll deductions. You may be able to support Focus on the Family through your employer.
  • Corporate Giving Campaigns: Many companies participate in workplace giving through United Way campaigns. These giving campaigns enable their employees to make a difference in local and national charities. Your company’s giving campaign may provide you the opportunity to give to Focus on the Family.
