The Community Foundation of Crawford County (CFCC) seeks to honor volunteers that live in Crawford County or serve Crawford County through the nonprofit structure and is proud to announce the Doris June Snider Kaiser Volunteer of the Year Award. Any kind of “nonprofit” is eligible to submit a volunteer (or a married couple) of the year. Nonprofit can mean any type of group or organization that does provides some type of human service: 501(c)(3) organizations, membership groups, churches/houses of worship, civic clubs and more. If in doubt, just call the Community Foundation at 812.365.2900.
As a philanthropic organization, the CFCC points out that philanthropy is about much more than money. Volunteerism and sharing one’s talents are significant parts of philanthropy and contribute greatly to the success of any community.
Nonprofits located in, or serving, Crawford County are encouraged to submit the name of one adult/couple (ages 19 and older) and/or one youth (ages 18 and younger). This is NOT a competitive process, but one where each person or couple who is submitted will be honored. Submission forms will be available by March 11, 2024 and due by April 15, 2024. Reservation forms will follow by April 22 and will be due by May 11, 2024.
The volunteers will be honored at an event on June 14, 2024, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the Jasper Engines & Transmissions Community Room at the Community Foundation of Crawford County, 4030 E Goodman Rdg Rd, Marengo, IN. The honorees’ meals, a special award and commemorative booklet will be paid for through the Doris June Snider Kaiser Memorial Endowment Fund and a Duke Energy sponsorship. Because of these combined efforts, five additional guests of the honoree may attend free of charge. Tables seat six people.
