Handling Paper Pledge Protocol

Although giving online is easier than ever, some donors may still prefer to give using a paper pledge form. If so, they can mail their completed pledge directly to the CFC Processing Center at P.O. Box 7820 Madison, WI 53707-7820. Alternatively, forms can be collected by the CFC Community/Area Project Officer (CAPO) and submitted together in the envelope provided for this purpose. At your installation, a special drop-off location might be arranged. If pledge forms are submitted to Keyworkers directly, they must be stored in a secure location until they are able to be delivered to the CAPO.

If you are unsure how to find your CAPO or your pledge form drop off location, contact us for help.
