I was hoping to see the Buckeye Firearms Foundation listed in the CFC list of charities for the CFC this coming year.
This a source of revenue for some components of NRA and GOA. The BFF leadership may want to consider the pros and cons of getting involved in this. Maybe BFF has already. http://www.heartofohiocfc.org/charity_information.html

Not sure what's meant by "CFC - a.k.a. United Way". The Combined Federal Campaign is for Federal employees only, and you can indeed give to the NRA Foundation (CFC #11872) through specifying that your contribution go there. However, the United Way is completely separate, and, unfortunately, I know of no way to give to any firearms-friendly foundations through it. If someone is aware of such a way, please let us know.

Of course you are most accurate regarding my mention of United Way. I was incorrect and I edited the title text.

In addition to the link I posted earlier here's the one OPM keeps. http://www.opm.gov/cfc/index.asp

No problem. I wish I could give to the NRA Foundation or another such organization through the United Way. I end up designating my United Way gift to the Boy Scouts, even though I was never a Boy Scout and have never been involved with them in any way. I'm just tired of hearing about the politically correct attacks on them. Many Boy Scout outfits also promote shooting.

I used to work as a civilian employee of the DoD, and I always designated my gift to the NRA Foundation through CFC.

I used to always give to breast cancer research. When My First Sargent ask why. I replied that I had to do what I could to save Gods gift to men. There is no such thing as a bad breast in my mind. (.V.) Ok back to the gun issue, if I am going to give money towards protecting my guns rights I will do it myself and not through a third party.

Zack...a lot of employers have matching donation programs, and certain benefits through employment with them for charitable donation. The employee determines specifically where their donation goes by chosing from that groups "list". If the donations are going to be done through your work...and you can pick where it goes, why not send some to a 2A organization. It would be better to donate directly, but many times the amount is doubled by the company... :idea:

I was hoping to see BFF listed as a charity in this years CFC booklet. Didn't see it. http://www.cowvcfc.org/

United Way - No Way. They are a shake-down origination. Give directly to your chosen org. You don't need a middle man skimming off the top.

I now have a 501c3 called the Dillon Sportsman Center Foundation...

"For the preservation of Dillon Sportsman Center, charter of my Youth Shooting Sports program, and providing hunting/shooting education to the public."

So if anyone wants to make a charitable donation :egrin:

It's hard to justify putting my business assets into the facility out there, since it is not my property. We are attempting to raise funds to preserve/improve the place since the state is unable/interested in doing so... :roll:
