2019 Unsung Heroes
Most people do not realize that nearly half of our funds under management are owned by nonprofit organizations. The Foundation concentrates on managing the funds of these nonprofits so they can concentrate on the important services they provide. Since our nonprofits do such meaningful work, we created a project to recognize the people behind-the-scenes make these organizations so impactful. All of our custodial agencies are invited to participate in this Fall’s “Unsung Heroes".
This is a voluntary opportunity for an agency to recognize a staff person or volunteer* that is not generally seen but is a driving force in your agency. Nonprofit agencies cannot survive without financial resources, but we also know agencies cannot survive without the lifeblood & dedication from staff -- especially those behind-the-scenes. Together, we will recognize those vital employees and volunteers at our Annual Meeting on October 30, 2019. Our annual meeting has become a source of inspiration in the community and we know this is the perfect venue to show what amazing nonprofit employees and volunteers Dallas has helping to shape the wonderful community in which we live.
*This year, agencies with five or less employees can recognize a volunteer who is not a major financial donor.
