CFC Disbursement Process
The vast majority of Federal employee contributions made to non-profit organizations through Miami Valley CFC are fulfilled by payroll deduction. Miami Valley CFC begins receiving payroll deductions in January of each year for pledges made during the preceding campaign. For example, in January 2016 payroll processing centers will begin forwarding funds collected for pledges made during the 2015 campaign.
Organizations receiving pledges from the 2015 campaign can expect to receive notification of the amount directed to their charity by Office of Personnel Management's March 15, 2016, deadline.
Financial transactions on this website are processed by the United Way of Greater Dayton Area. United Way of Greater Dayton Area is the Federation for 42 charities participating with the Miami Valley Combined Federal Campaign in 2015.
