"Best in America" Award
The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) received the "Best in America" award for achieving the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness:
"The Independent Charities Seal of Excellence is awarded to the members of Independent Charities of America and Local Independent Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, document, and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness.
These standards include those required by the US Government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world.
Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated that fewer than 50,000, or 5 percent, meet or exceed these standards, and, of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal."
The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) received the "Editor's Choice" award for providing the highest quality cancer information on the Internet:
"This award is is given by the Editors at OncoLink to the providers of the highest quality cancer information on the Internet.
Selection is based on the particular emphasis we at OncoLink place on patients and families who empower themselves with reliable information about their disease.
On a regular basis, the Editors at OncoLink will choose a website which is exemplary of this philosophy, and serves as a model for others."
Nancy O'Hagan received the "40 Under 40" award from Boston Business Journal. This award honors 40 outstanding professionals under the age of 40 for their business success and community contributions.
The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation has been awarded the "Valued Partner" seal of approval from GuideStar for charity effectiveness.
