Consistent with new regulations at 5 CFR 950, OPM has contracted with The Give Back Foundation (also known as the Central Campaign Administrator or CCA) to develop and deploy a new secure web-based system to accept online pledges.
Here are some general instructions for how to pledge online using the centralized giving platform. For a more detailed walkthrough including screenshots, ask your Campaign Coordinator, CFC staff member, or download our “CFC Charitable Giving Online User Guide 2017.pdf”.
1 Visit opm.gov/ShowSomeLoveCFC and follow the steps to create an account. Either personal or government email can be used.
2 From the Welcome Page, click “Pledge Now.”
3 Search for charities by entering various criteria to narrow your search. Then click “Search for Charities” to see your customized list.
4 Select the charities you want to support by clicking the “Add” button. When you are finished, click “Checkout.”
5 Select your payment method (payroll deduction, bank account, or credit/debit card). If you choose payroll allotment, you will be required to enter your Social Security number to connect to your payroll system.
6 elect your payroll frequency. If you elect to use a credit card or bank account, you can choose between a one-time or monthly recurring gift.
7 Designate a portion of your annual pledge to each of your selected charities. The amount designated must equal the amount pledged. If you selected charities with available volunteer hours, indicate the number of hours you pledge to each organization.
8 Share your personal information with your selected charities, if desired. If you are volunteering, your information will be automatically shared so the charities can contact you regarding volunteer opportunities.
9 Review your pledge checkout for accuracy. You can go back to make changes. When everything is correct, check the “I Agree” box and click “Submit Pledge” to confirm.
10 Print the confirmation for your records.
