The DC One Fund program is the District Government’s workplace giving program. It is jointly administered by the United Way of the National Capital Area and The United Black Fund Inc. of Greater Washington, DC. The program is run by the Office of the Secretary of the District of Columbia. The Office of the Secretary, in conjunction with agency coordinators, plans and administers the day‐to‐day operations of the One Fund program. District government employees can manage their One Fund donations electronically during the campaign season that begins on the first Monday of October and ends on the second Friday of December, lasting approximately 10 weeks. Recurring payroll deduction, one-time payroll deduction, credit, or debit card payments are accepted. All payroll deduction pledges start on the first or second pay period of the following calendar year.
The 2019 campaign is the 65th Annual DC One Fund Campaign, which raised a record $1,322,443, the highest amount raised in 20 years. The DC One Fund originated to afford DC government employees a full opportunity to participate in charitable giving in their community. The District of Columbia Government agrees that the DC One Fund shall be the only on-the-job charitable solicitation authorized among DC government employees. The DC government seeks to achieve the objectives of an effective and efficient single campaign among DC government employees for the support of worthy, charitable causes with minimal disruption to the workforce.
Every year the DC One Fund Campaign begins in the first week of October and runs for approximately 10 weeks.
Applications for the nonprofit participation in the DC One Fund are accepted at the beginning of the year and closed on the last working day in May.
