The Office of Personnel Management annually recognizes campaigns and volunteers who make extraordinary contributions to the CFC through their dedication and creativity. CFC Innovator Awards are presented to campaigns that implemented an innovative strategy to support fundraising efforts. This is the eighth consecutive year for the CFCNCA and the fourth consecutive year for the CFC-O to receive the award.
