What does AFR mean in CFC?
Administrative and Fundraising Rate
Each organization’s listing in the CFC Charity Directory contains a number the government calls the Administrative and Fundraising Rate (AFR). It is intended to help donors understand the administrative overhead of participating charities.
How does the CFC work?
Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and halons destroy the earth’s protective ozone layer, which shields the earth from harmful ultraviolet (UV-B) rays generated from the sun. CFCs and HCFCs also warm the lower atmosphere of the earth, changing global climate.
Are CFC donations pre tax?
While tax deductible, CFC deductions are not pre-tax. Donors who are eligible to itemize charitable contributions on income tax returns may include contributions made through the CFC.
Are CFCs still used?
Production of CFCs ceased in 1995. HCFC production will cease in 2020 (HCFC-22) or 2030 (HCFC-123). This means that although equipment that uses these refrigerants may operate just fine for 20 or 30 years, new or recycled refrigerant to service it may not be available. Don’t buy equipment that uses CFC refrigerants.
Does CFC take a percentage?
The percentage that each campaign deducts has always varied widely. For example, the DC CFC’s cost percentage was 9.5% in 2015, not 13%. If a charity gets all or most of its donations from a lower cost campaign like DC’s, the percentage deducted from its checks will be lower.
