Some of the campaign’s most important activities take place after the campaign has ended. This is the time to Show Some Love and say “thank you” to your department, agency, or installation leadership, campaign workers, and donors. Recognition and appreciation build morale and a strong foundation for next year’s campaign.  

We have five (5) formal awards categories. For the agency/installation/office awards, five (5) finalists will be selected in each size group:

  • Agencies with more than 1,000 personnel
  • Agencies/offices with 500 - 1,000 personnel
  • Agencies/offices with 100 - 499 personnel
  • Agencies/offices with fewer than 100 personnel

All finalists will be celebrated and winners will be announced at the Virtual CFC Awards Ceremony in late February. To complete a nomination, click the name of the award to complete the webform. The deadline to complete a nomination is Feb 2, 2021.
