Dawn Banks Leadership Award
In a speech, Community Foundation Executive Director Tim Adams named this year’s Dawn Banks Leadership Award recipient: Every Teton Valley Nonprofit Community Leader.
“Last year was tough to say the least,” Adams said. “As the award committee reflected on how all of the nonprofit leaders were approaching the pandemic and making critical decisions to ensure they could continue to serve our community, it became very clear who would be the winner. . Without a manual to guide them, innovation, determination and collaboration have become standard operating procedures. The programs were redesigned to configure new models that would amount to disrupting services as little as possible. “
To commemorate how nonprofits have come together in the face of adversity, the Community Foundation updated the gazebo outside its office with a plaque that reads:
Dedicated July 17, 2021
In honor of local nonprofit leaders and their organization’s unwavering commitment to this community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thank you for your service and ingenuity.
