Giving Matters Award applications available

by: Josh Siegel Staff Writer

Applications for the Giving Matters Youth Philanthropy Leadership Award can be submitted until Fed. 1.

The award, in memory of Lois B. Green, is presented annually to recognize a female high school student in grades 10-12 for their work in the community.

Community Youth Development of Sarasota has partnered with Giving Matters, a program of the Southwest Florida Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, since 2011 to celebrate the effort of female philanthropists.

The winner will receive a $1,000 prize to be awarded as a $500 scholarship to the winner’s choice of post-secondary school and a $500 contribution to her choice of a local nonprofit organization.

The winner will be selected by a panel of judges from the community and will be announced by March 29.

Also, the winner and a family member will be special guests at a Giving Matters luncheon April 29, when the award will be presented.

For more information, contact Community Youth Development of Sarasota at 941-922-5126 or by email to [email protected].
