CIA Officer Receives 2012 Combined Federal Campaign National Heroes Award
CIA senior officer Tom Crispell was honored with the 2012 National Heroes Award, the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) highest Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) honor. The CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign.There are nearly 200 CFC campaigns throughout the U.S. and overseas, which raise millions of dollars each year to support non-profit organizations.
Every year OPM recognizes campaigns and volunteers who have made extraordinary contributions to the CFC through their dedication and creativity. Tom was one of only two federal employees honored with the national award.
“The CFC Heroes Awards are given to the CFC’s ‘unsung heroes’ who made significant differences and demonstrated leadership qualities in their campaign,” said Dr. Brandon Haller, Local Federal Coordinating Committee Chairperson, during the awards ceremony held at the Ronald Reagan Building on Sept. 4, 2013. “Whether accompanying management on charity visits, solving day-to-day problems, or even helping out as a stand-in photographer, Tom maintained a great sense of service, professionalism, and character.”
Tom was recognized for his efforts in leading the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Farm Credit Administration’s campaigns to record-high donations in 2012. He also worked closely with the CFC National Capital Area staff to develop best practices in campaign operations and served as a mentor to new CFC representatives across the federal government.
Recently, Tom sat down with WJLA's Capital Insider* to discuss the 2013 CFC campaign.
