Gallaudet University has been selected as a participating nonprofit in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), a federal government workplace giving campaign. This year’s campaign, “Make It Possible,” is open now to December 15, 2015.
Established in 1864, Gallaudet University is the world’s only liberal arts university in which all programs and services are designed to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing students.
“Federal employees, retirees, and contractors now have a new way to help make it possible for Gallaudet University to continue its mission of educating deaf and hard of hearing students to become the leaders of tomorrow,” said Paul Julin, vice president for Institutional Advancement. “Gifts to the University are immediately put to work to provide scholarships and the best academics, student success services, and extracurricular activities for students as they prepare for successful futures.”
Federal employees who want to donate to Gallaudet through the CFC can do so by submitting a pledge via payroll deduction, sending cash or check, using a credit or debit card, or e-check/ACH. When filling out the form, please identify Gallaudet using its CFC number: 67124. Click here for more information about Gallaudet’s participation in the CFC.
All gifts made through the CFC campaign qualify as tax-deductible. For more information, including frequently asked questions (FAQs), pledge forms, and links to easily set up payroll deductions, click here. A tutorial about making a pledge is available here.
