EVENTS FUNDS WHAT'S HAPPENING

Leadership Council Award

This $1,000 unrestricted award recognizes a next generation person (25-45 year old) who serves as a member of a nonprofit board in Howard County and has exemplified leadership and commitment to the organization and to the community.

The Foundation Leadership Council was created in 2008 to extend the Foundation’s outreach to the community, to enhance the Foundation’s asset development capacity and to draw upon the knowledge, abilities and experience of key friends of the foundation. Its membership consists of 15-20 persons with a demonstrated commitment to the foundation’s mission and a willingness to use their time and talents to further that mission. The founding members are the former chairs of the Board of Directors and invited stakeholders.

The award will be presented at the Community Foundation of Howard County’s Annual Dinner on December 3, when the community gathers virtually to celebrate philanthropy and recognize some of the terrific work being done by local nonprofits.
