2015 CHARITY APPLICATION PERIOD

The 2015 charity application period will be from:

February 2nd through March 6, 2015.

Charities interested in applying for inclusion in the campaign should check the Charities Application Materials item from the above menu. We are now using Universal Giving which means the former distinctions among local, statewide, and adjacent no longer apply and charities should apply only to the campaign in which they have a strong local presence.

We offer an online application process ($10 for independent; $30 for federations) at www.charitynexus.org/_apply and we provide a guide with frequently asked questions. Click here for the PDF guide.

Email Application: If you do not use the online application, please submit your application by email, with attachments in .pdf format, if possible.

Paper applications are discouraged.

 

We cannot accept applications either before or after the application period.

If you have any questions, please contact Wink Newcomb, wnewcomb@communitysharesmn.org or at 651-647-6491.


THE CAMPAIGN IS NOW CLOSED.

The solicitation period for the Northern Lights CFC is now closed. Extensions may have been granted to other campaigns, but do not apply to Northern Lights CFC.

Thanks you all for your generosity to the charities of the CFC!!

We regret that we were not able to offer credit card  pledging as an option for the 2014 campaign.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES - "Supporting the Community"
Want to go that extra mile?  Many of the charities in the CFC list volunteer opportunities on two websites:

www.volunteermatch.com

www.handsontwincities.org

St. Paul Parks also has some volunteer opportunities.
 
 Go to St. Paul Parks & Recreation for more information on how to volunteer.


Campaign Cookbook
The Campaign Cookbook sales have netted over $3000 for charities in the campaign -- the most successful campaign fundraiser ever! We are offering them at a reduced price of $5.00 -- and it all goes to charity!
Cookbooks can be ordered by contacting the campaign at cfc@communitysharesmn.org.
Funds raised will go to undesignated to be apportioned to charities in the campaign that receive designations.



ONLINE PLEDGES

You can access your CFC Nexus pledge at any time by logging in and clicking on the menu item, My Pledges and Profile. You will be able to see all previous pledges.
You can try a demo of the system at www.cfcnexus.org; just click on the banner that says Demo. Since it is just a demo, the information goes nowhere.

EMPLOYEES RECOMMEND A CHARITY

Don't see a favorite charity on the list? Charities must apply annually to be included in the CFC Charity List. Let your favorite organization know about CFC and have them contact Wink Newcomb at wnewcomb@communitysharesmn.org or 651-647-6491


NEED A RECEIPT FOR FILING TAXES?

Donors who need a receipt for their cash or check donation to the 2013 CFC may get one by contacting the CFC office at 651-647-6491 or by contacting Wink Newcomb: wnewcomb@communitysharesmn.org.
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. The copy of your online donation details the charities designated.
