Thank you, NIH!
Message from NIH Combined Federal Campaign Co-Chair
We did it! [NIH director] Dr. [Francis] Collins and I are delighted to report that we have exceeded our NIH CFC 2016 goal and have raised $2,400,154 for CFC charities. This achievement reflects the NIH community’s outstanding commitment to improving the lives of others, both through our professional roles and personally through generous contributions to the nonprofit community. Thank you to the many in our NIH community who contributed to this effort.
There were over 20,000 nonprofit organizations participating in the campaign this past year, including local, national and international organizations. From supporting medical research and patients in need to providing sanctuaries for the homeless, helping people with mental health and substance use disorders, and funding for the arts, these organizations help make our communities and our world a better place. Our CFC donations contribute to making these organizations and the work they do possible.
I would like to extend a special thank you to the many keyworkers and campaign coordinators whose time, creativity and enthusiasm made this year’s campaign so successful. Your efforts are appreciated.
Thank you all for helping us to achieve this outstanding accomplishment.
Dr. Nora Volkow, NIDA director & NIH CFC co-chair
