|Funding Opportunities for Retired Government Employees
When federal employees retire from service, they lose the convenience of giving their charitable contributions through the Combined Federal Campaign. United Way of the Greater Dayton Area has implemented a new program called Miami Valley FORGE -- Funding Opportunities for Retired Government Employees -- that is designed to restore those charitable giving options. By signing up at , retirees can consolidate their annual giving, and members can pay their pledges in small amounts deducted from a checking or savings account throughout the year, mirroring the ease of payroll deduction. Hundreds of organizations can receive funding through FORGE, allowing members the freedom to choose how they want to make a lasting impact in their community and beyond.
