Unseen. Unknown. Unsung. Heroes Behind The Scenes.

Nearly half the funds under management by DJCF/SWCF are custodially held for other nonprofits. Oftentimes, it’s the people behind the scenes of these organizations making their work so impactful. They are the heroes making the difference and who we bring to the forefront to recognize and celebrate.

Whether volunteers or employees, they are the 2020 Unsung Heroes.

Thank you for your dedication.

Congratulations to this year’s Unsung Heroes

Join us for the virtual DJCF/SWCF annual meeting, November, 4, 2020, as we celebrate and recognize this year's recipients.

Submit your RSVP by October 20 to ensure receipt of your celebration kit
