2020 Annual Meeting
See them here: 2020 Unsung Heroes
Given how unique the last few months have been, this year’s annual meeting promises to be even more extraordinary as we showcase not only the great work the DJCF/SWCF has accomplished but the great work done behind the scenes by staff and volunteers of so many different nonprofits.
These nonprofits vary in size and mission but all share one thing in common, they partner with the DJCF/SWCF to be their fiscal manager. And at the event will be the big reveal. Which agencies will receive nearly $130,000 in grants from the Sylvan T. Baer Foundation – you have to RSVP to find out!
Since the SWCF/DJCF wants to continue to lavish meeting attendees, there are a few surprises in store, so be sure to join us Nov. 4 as we again celebrate local agencies, recipients and more...!
