Nominations open for the 2022 Laura Holmberg Award, presented by Community Foundation’s Women’s Fund

Is there someone you know who has made a lasting difference in the lives of other women living in Tompkins County?

Is there a volunteer at your work, business, school or organization who you’d like to thank for sharing their time, talent, and treasures?

We want to help you recognize that person!

Nominations are now open for the 2022 Laura Holmberg Award, presented by the Women’s Fund of the Community Foundation.

 

To submit a nomination, we ask that you fill out this form. Nominations are due August 31.  

                          

Established in 2006 by Anna Holmberg in remembrance of her mother, the Laura Holmberg Award recognizes the “unsung heroes” in our community,  whose contribution affects the Women’s Fund’s core mission, focusing on women and girls, and who have done so in an unpaid capacity. That is, the work has not been part of the person’s professional role. Consider the award a Lifetime Achievement in volunteering.

On behalf of the Women’s Fund and the Community Foundation of Tompkins County, thank you for your consideration and nominations. And, of course, thanks to you and your organization for all the great work you do for our community! To learn more about the Women’s Fund, or the Community Foundation, please visit our website.
