Nominate an Individual for an Award

The Community Foundation seeks to enhance public education and strengthen the nonprofit sector through three special grant programs that offer opportunities for individuals to pursue professional development activities of their own design.  Individuals are recognized for their leadership skills and demonstrated ability to make a difference in the lives of others.  Each program follows a competitive process, in which eligible candidates will be selected from a larger pool based on written nominations and, in some cases, their participation in a panel interview.
