Seeking 2017 Volunteer of the Year

Published: January 10, 2017

Volunteers play a vital role in the success of most not-for-profit agencies and have a significant impact on the quality of life in our community. Is there an individual in your nonprofit organization who, without compensation has made a significant, long time contribution of his/her time and talent to make your organization better and our community a better place to live? If so, the Montgomery County Community Foundation would like to offer you the opportunity to nominate them for a very special award.

One adult will be selected as the MCCF 2017 Volunteer of the Year Award and one youth will be selected as the MCCF 2017 Peggy Herzog Youth Volunteer of the Year award winner. All nominees will be recognized and the winner announced at MCCF’s annual meeting on Thursday, May 25. The organizations nominating the winners will receive a monetary award of $1,000 in honor of the winner. The winner will receive a personal plaque and his/her name will be added to a perpetual plaque displayed at the Foundation.

To nominate someone, please fill out the enclosed nomination form and return it to Montgomery County Community Foundation by 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 6.

2017 Volunteer of the Year Nomination Form

To ensure that the award is shared throughout the community, winners will not be selected from a particular agency in consecutive years and both winners will not be named from the same agency in the same year. Each agency may nominate just one individual, even if volunteers work in different capacities for each award. Family members and spouses of current board members and staff of MCCF are not eligible for nomination. While volunteers will say that their reward is the satisfaction of helping others, we think they deserve a bit of recognition too. Please feel free to contact Cheryl Keim at (765) 362-1267 or with any questions regarding the award or the nomination process.
