The Oregon State University campaign for the Oregon Employees' Charitable Fund Drive is going on now through the month of December.
What is the the Oregon Employees' Charitable Fund Drive? The CFD is a campaign that consolidates charitable solicitation into a once-a-year campaign. It offers access to a wide range of charities -- over 850 of them -- and gives state employees control over where their donations go. The first Charitable Fund Drive was implemented by Executive Order in 1989.
When you contribute to the Charitable Fund Drive, 100% of your donation goes to the organizations you designate. Last year's fund drive administrative costs (paid by the funds and federations - no donor or state funds used) were less than 10 percent of the overall funds raised.
When you make a payroll pledge in 2016, your donation dollars will be deducted starting with the first paycheck of 2017.

Giving is easy! Many employees find the CFD's payroll contribution method easiest and most satisfying because a small amount taken out of each check adds up to a substantial gift over the course of a year. The fund drive has an easy online pledging system that is secure, paperless and simple to use. You don't even have to create a new login and password! The giving site has already been populated with your name and OSU ID number.
Would you rather donate using cash or a check? The fund drive gladly accepts cash or checks. Click here for a 2016 paper pledge form (pdf) and follow the "mail to" directions at the top of the form. The 2016 giving guide (pdf) will provide you with a list of funds and federations.
Is it easier for you to give with a credit card? The fund drive can charge your gift to most major credit cards, and do it securely online.
