Universal GivingUniversal Giving permits donors to pledge to any participating CFC charity no matter where the donor or the charity is geographically located.
The Chicago Area CFC is in its second year of testing the Universal Giving option. Once again, donors will be able to select from more than 39,000 local charities from areas outside of our campaign. These additional local charities are members of all the CFC campaigns across the country.
Universal Giving charities are only listed in available online giving tools. They will not appear in the paper charity list.
Charities local to our campaign are marked with a Green Heart icon. These charities belong to the Chicago Area CFC. Charities marked with an Orange UG Symbol belong to CFCs outside of our campaign area. Enter the charity's 5-digit charity code either on your paper pledge form or in the online donation tool, complete the form and submit! It's that easy!
New advanced search options will allow you to view ALL the Universal Giving (UG) charities (this is the default) or hide the UG charities in searches and lists. In addition, the ability to sort the list by distance from a zip code has been added. Charities that did not submit zip codes will not appear in the zip code distance search results.

Need a Receipt for Filing Taxes?
Donors who need a receipt for their cash or check donation to the CFC may get one by contacting the CFC office at 312-379-0190 or the CFC Help Desk: email@example.com.
Donors who made payroll deductions do not need a receipt as their end-of-year earnings statement along with their pledge form provide sufficient documentation.
