Polaris accepts gifts made through Donor Advised Funds (DAFs). DAFs allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive a tax deduction at the time the gift is made, and then recommend gifts from that fund over time. If your DAF is set up through Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon, you may use DAF Direct to make your contribution. Polaris’s EIN number is 03-0391561.

The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the annual workplace giving program for federal employees. Each year, federal employees and military personnel raise millions of dollars for charity by choosing to donate a portion of their salary. If you or someone you know works for the federal government, please consider making a donation to Polaris through the CFC.
During the enrollment period of September-December, federal employees are provided with a pledge card or web address to indicate the charity they are interested in supporting. Simply designate Polaris by including our CFC #97210 and EIN #03-0391561.
