2020 Annual Meeting Wrap Up!
Even the pandemic couldn’t prevent this year’s event from being a success!
See them here: 2020 Unsung Heroes
Missed the meeting? Watch it here!
The evening was spent celebrating and honoring the many agencies, volunteers and employees, and DJCF/SWCF leadership. Hundreds of attendees experienced, firsthand, the extraordinary work the DJCF/SWCF has accomplished both in and around the community and all the great work done behind the scenes of so many different nonprofits – the Unsung Heroes.
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, as has been every year, participants learned which agencies were the recipients of this year’s nearly $130,000 in grants from the Sylvan T. Baer Foundation.
Congratulations to all the agencies whose great work is admired and to those whose work will now be just a little (financially) easier because of the generosity of Baer Foundation...!
