Honoring Those Who Give from the Heart
In order to keep the community safe and healthy during this coronavirus pandemic, the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region and NBC26 canceled the Celebrating Volunteer 2020 event planned for April 21.
While we can’t celebrate face-to-face, the Community Foundation, NBC26, award sponsors and event planning committee members are honored to recognize our Celebrating Volunteer winners and their outstanding contributions in our community!
In addition, each winner receives $5,000 to give to a local nonprofit organization and the youth winner gets a $1,500 scholarship and $1,000 to donate to a nonprofit. Thanks to the award sponsors, a total of $26,000 will be given to local charities in the names of the winners. Since 1998, award sponsors have given $723,000 to local charities selected by their award recipients!
