May Institute

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)

May Institute’s CFC designation number is 11228.

The Independent Charities of America (ICA) has named May Institute an eligible beneficiary of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), the world’s largest and most exclusive fund drive. During the campaign season (September 1 to December 15), federal, postal, and military donors may pledge to support eligible nonprofit organizations like May Institute that provide health and human services benefits throughout the world.

One hundred percent of the funds May Institute raises through the campaign will help us provide specialized care and support services to children and adults with autism, brain injury, and other special needs.

To be named a CFC beneficiary, May Institute had to go under rigorous review to show that we meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. These standards are required by the U.S. government for inclusion in the CFC, and fewer than 50,000 charities (or 5 percent) of the millions of charities operating in the United States meet these standards.

ICA has also awarded May Institute with the highest honor - the Seal of Excellence. This award is given to less than 2,000 charities (or 4 percent) of the 50,000 charities in the CFC.

May Institute is listed under the Children’s Medical & Research Charities of America federation in the CFC Handbook, which is distributed to all federal employees. You can also find us on your workplace’s charitable fund drive’s website or the Best of the CFC website. Your Human Resource department can answer any questions you have on how to contribute through this campaign.

May Institute is registered through the CFC as Autism Treatment, Research, and Training for Military and Civilian Families.

The mission of CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee-focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.
