What Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) does MAAF recommend?
The Combined Federal Campaign is a list of charities disseminated by the US Government to all government employees, basically like the United Way. Federal employees can easily select from among these vetted and approved charities for their personal giving programs. MAAF is not currently listed, but MAAF accepts donations directly – one-time donations or automatic, recurring donations just like CFC. No paypal account required. If you prefer to work with CFC charities, MAAF does review programs to identify the charities with the best fit to MAAF goals of supporting nontheists in the military and promoting interfaith toleration.
