North Coast Combined Federal Campaign 

CFC Awards

Awards Ceremony for 2014 Campaign

The 2014 North Coast Combined Federal Campaign (NCCFC) Awards Ceremony took place on January 28, 2015.  This year’s theme, “Give for Good” helped the campaign raise over $2,000,000, to help others.   The efforts of the Local Federal Coordinating Committee, CFC Chairperson, Federal Executive Board, Organization Chairpersons, Loaned Executives, Keyworkers, workplace managers/supervisors, and workers within the Federal community were instrumental in generating the funds that will help many lives in our area and around the world.   On behalf of the many who will be helped, we send out another sincere, heart-felt “Thank YOU!" 

Awards in several performance categories were presented.  Most of the category names are self-explanatory; however, the Gold/Silver Awards are based on very specific criteria.  Select a category below to see the winners for 2014.
