The CFC-O recognizes donors, units, and campaign workers for their collective efforts to make the campaign a success.

Unit Recognition

Units will receive award plaques at the end of the campaign based on either a percent participation or a per capita gift amount in the unit. A special Seal of Distinction will be added to the unit award plaque when 50 percent (or more) of the unit's donations (dollars or donors) are received through online giving OR the unit achieves a 10 percent increase in either category over the previous year's results.
