Islamic Relief USA™ and the Combined Federal Campaign

Islamic Relief USA™ is on the U.S. government’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) charity list, which means that federal employees can choose to contribute to the charity of their choice through automatic payroll deductions. The CFC is the world’s largest workplace charity drive and raises millions of dollars every year to assist thousands of charities through donations from federal employees and service members. The CFC supports eligible nonprofit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. Federal employees who are interested in donating to IRUSA through the CFC should reference CFC code 10194. To learn more about the CFC and how you can participate, click here. If you are a service member in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard, you can have a military allotment set up for automatic payroll deduction. Contact Heidi Wolfset, IRUSA’s finance reporting coordinator, at hwolfset@irusa.org for more information.

IRUSA Participates at CFC Kickoff Events Across the U.S.

IRUSA’s participation in the CFC was kicked off in September 2010, when several staff members traveled to Washington, DC, Seattle, WA, and Scott Air Force Base in Illinois in September 2010 to take part in a CFC launch event, which showcased U.S. nonprofit groups featured on the CFC list. At first, many of the attendees didn’t know about Islamic Relief USA, according to Christina Tobias-Nahi, who represented IRUSA at the event: “They stopped by to talk to us about the projects we are doing both overseas and in the U.S. and were enthusiastic to learn more.”
