This new award, created in 2017, recognizes an individual staff member’s (or members’) outstanding accomplishment(s) in a given calendar year. It is presented to a staff member (or group of staff) who has gone “above and beyond” the scope of their current position by, for example, involvement in a special project, realization of a significant achievement, or a significant accomplishment which has had an impact on the Foundation on a national basis. This award is open to staff at all levels of the organization across the country with at least 2 years of service. More than one award may be presented in a given year.
