From September through December, all Federal Employees are asked to contribute to charities listed in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) brochure. Charities mentioned have to meet the strict criteria of the United States Office of Personnel Management (referred to as OPM), otherwise they are denied participation in the annual CFC fundraising campaign. Payroll deduction allows employees to give to the charities they want to support. The employee also has the option to give a one time gift to their favorite non-profit.
Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc. has been participating in the CFC since 1991. We keep our fundraising and administrative costs down as low as possible, therefore enabling your hard earned dollars to be used for the purpose for which you have donated them. Since the year of 1990, approximately 94.5% of all donations given to our prison ministry have been used for programming expenses (or in other words, went for the purpose of getting the Gospel of Jesus Christ out to inmates and youths in trouble in institutions across the USA). Only 5.5% was used for administrative and fundraising expenses.
Our CFC donor number in the national brochure is #11463. If you decide to give a one time gift or pledge to Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc., please fill in the pledge card with all pertinent information clearly marked. Filling in the “Name Released To Designated Agency” part of the card will notify us of your decision and we will send you a letter of thanks as soon as the CFC agency sends confirmation to us which is usually around May of the following year.

Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc. relies on the gifts and prayers of employees like you. Your support enables our organization to preach the Gospel to inmates throughout the United States and is being used by God so that lives are being changed.
Your workplace pledges and contributions will help share God’s Word with those who are living in deep spiritual darkness. Not only will you be part of the Lord’s Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20), but you will also help reduce crime by redirecting the paths of those, who will eventually be released, from the ways of their criminal past to the straight and narrow (Matthew 7:13-14) leading to Christ, our Savior.
