  • To honor those who volunteer to make their communities better, the McPherson County Community Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to announce nominations for the Philanthropist of the Year award are now being accepted.
    Three grants totaling $2,000 will be awarded to honor volunteers nominated by the local organizations. Awards will be as such — $1,000 to the first-placed organization; $750 to the second-place organization; and $500 to the third-place organization. Received funds may be used by the nominating organization for programs, projects or basic operating expenses.
    To nominate the philanthropic efforts of a volunteer, a staff member of a McPherson County nonprofit organization must complete the Philanthropist of the Year nomination form and include a one page narrative describing the volunteer’s role. Information to consider including in the narrative: what type of volunteer work has the applicant performed; how long has this person volunteered for your organization; and what qualities make this person a philanthropist.
    Selected philanthropists and organizations will be announced at the McPherson County Community Foundation’s Recognition Reception to be 7 p.m. Nov. 14 in the Opera House Ballroom, McPherson.
    The postmark deadline for nominations is Oct. 17.
