    As for the campaign itself...

    While the campaign to increase generosity should be commended, questions have arisen regarding the effectiveness of its oversight of the participating charities. In 2006, federal investigators released a report revealing that 6% of the charities in the program owed back payroll taxes and several engaged in criminal activity. Officials from the campaign have said that their hands are tied, citing a federal law that prevents them from screening charities for federal tax compliance. Perhaps even more disturbing was that the federal investigators were able to enroll a fake charity. Campaign officials claim that they’ve since taken steps to guarantee that all participating charities are actually tax-exempt charities recognized by the IRS.

    If campaign officials had conducted appropriate due diligence, or if the investigators had probed a little further, federal employees would have found out that many of the charities the government recommends supporting are in poor fiscal health. We examined the 2,045 national and international charities participating in the CFC (there are thousands more that participate in hundreds of local campaigns). Our investigation revealed that 817 are rated by Charity Navigator and that 30% of those fail to earn a good rating. Specifically, two charities have a 0-star, ‘exceptionally poor’ rating, 69 have a 1-star, ‘poor’ rating, and 176 have a 2-star, ‘needs improvement’ rating.

    And, as the CFC grows, more and more government workers are opting out.

      Yes I know that. Clearly stated in text I excerpted from the website.
      The "OPM" in the URL is for Office of Personnel Management, my comment on other use of OPM was regarding generic acronym usage of everyday (American) English.

        yeah I wouldn't read much into that. Its just a vehicle for donations. Could be just a sign of the times.

        When I last did it I donating money was still a pain

        Now it just a few clicks.
