Gun Owners Foundation
I don't have the ref #s handy
but you can also give to the NRA Foundation and NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund through the CFC. I do this every year and I actually enjoy seeing the money deducted from my paychecks .
My money goes to the USO and to Fisher House.
Smeg...I can't insert links...but www.uso.org and www.fisherhouse.org are the links
For those of us in the Army, it means a company formation for a spiel by the unit CFC guy.
Fisher House provides a place to live for the families of soldiers who are in the hospital. Nowadays that mostly goes for the families of wounded troops who have been shipped stateside for treatment. A most worthy cause.
Combined Federal Campaign
It is a big, charitable giving effort for federal employees, civillian and military. Giving is optional. Being bugged about it by the "CFC Giving Coordinator" is not. You fill out a form and the amount you choose is deducted from your paycheck and given to charity. If you don't pick particular charities, you deduction gets spread among them all. Many, many are causes that I wouldn't give used toilet paper to. A handful are excellent causes that support the freedoms that we are sworn to uphold.
But if you do choose to give and you are not a hopeless liberal romantic it is best to designate where your money goes. I gave to those organizations which I knew would provide help in the ways I wanted my money to go.
Yeah, they tried that crap on me when I was in the Air Force. I told them to shove the CFC where the sun don't shine. Any contributing I felt I needed to do I could do directly without having any of my money go towards keeping the CFC running and funding all the leftists, because even if you designate your donee, part of that money still goes to fund the CFC. It got to the point where my OIC pulled me aside and wanted me to just sign the form, they would make the contribution for me so they could show 100%. I wouldn't do it.
Been giving to them 4 for the last 20 years.
