Heart of Gold Awards

Nominations Sought for Heart of Gold Awards

Do you know someone who VOLUNTEERS their time to go out of their way to brighten days, make lives easier, or help others? You can nominate them for a Heart of Gold Award through the Community Foundation of Whitley County.

For 26 years, the Community Foundation has celebrated the people who make a difference in the lives of Whitley County residents. No act of kindness is too small and there is no age limit for recipients or the nominators; they just need to live in Whitley County.

Consideration should be given to a VOLUNTEER who identified a need and filled it; recognized an opportunity and acted upon it; shared his/her time and energy as a volunteer for the sake of others; volunteered to create positive change; inspired others to volunteer; or performed an exceptional act of kindness.

Recipients and their nominators will be posted on the Community Foundation web site, an excerpt of the nomination will be shared with the public and they will be invited to a reception honoring nominees and revealing the identity of their nominators.


You may submit your entry in one of three ways. Please be sure to include the name and address of the nominee as well as your own contact information including a phone number and email address.

Write a brief letter and mail it to the Foundation.
