Each week, Keypersons will submit a Report Envelope to their Unit Coordinator. Unit Coordinators will consolidate the Reports from all Keypersons and submit one Report Envelope for the unit to the CAPO.

Here is a walkthrough/reminder of the steps in the weekly reporting process.

After making the personal "ask" with your potential contributors, you will still need to follow up with them. Research shows people typcially need 4-6 touchpoints before they take action. You can use these pre-written email templates while following up with the potential contributors in your unit.

The CFC-O needs your help in encouraging contributors to use one of two online pledge methods: myPay DFAS (an electronic payroll allotment) or the CFC-O eGiving system (a onetime or recurring pledge using a credit card, debit card or direct transfer from a bank account). Online pleding is safe and effective: it lowers costs and reduces processing errors. The following tutorials are designed to walk contributors through making an online pledge. These tutorials are also posted on the Contributor Materials page of this website.
