Combined Fund Drive Disaster Relief Special Campaign Policy:

The Combined Fund Drive understands that many calls will be made for monetary donations during relief campaigns, so please give, but give wisely.  For more resources about the charities involved in any disaster relief campaign, please visit any of the organizations below:



The Washington State Combined Fund Drive knows that when disasters strike, help is needed and the CFD will always provide an avenue for our donors to give during any time of need.  The process we use to determine what charities may participate in a disaster relief campaign are as follows:

  • Acquiring the list of participating charities

    CFD staff sends an email to every single active member charity in the CFD program asking who is providing services and goods to the disaster relief efforts and give 24 hours for charities to respond to our request.

    Once the 24-hour time period has elapsed, the CFD verifies that the charities who have responded to our request are members of the CFD with a current/active status at the IRS and Office of the Secretary of State Charities Division and launches the disaster relief campaign.

    Any charity that responds after the initial 24-hour period is still eligible to participate in a disaster relief campaign if they meet the required qualifications.

  • Proof of presence

    Proof of charity involvement in disaster relief zones must be provided to the CFD. Proof can come in the form of press releases, statements, verification through news vendors or other means.


  • Right of refusal

    The Combined Fund Drive is not a policing agency and has no means to verify that charities involved in any disaster relief campaign are providing the services and goods they have stated they are providing.

    Charity participation in a disaster relief campaign is not an endorsement on behalf of the CFD.

    The Combined Fund Drive reserves the right to eliminate any charity from disaster relief campaigns if it is discovered that they are not providing services specific to the disaster relief effort.
