Nominate a candidate for the Jefferson Awards as it celebrates 45 years
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) – WACH FOX is proud to be a partner with the Jefferson Awards Foundation and now wants to help it celebrate a huge milestone.
The foundation will celebrate its 45th anniversary Wednesday, Dec. 7.
If you know someone who you believe is worthy of a Jefferson Awards nomination, you can nominate them by filling out this form to begin the nomination process.
The foundation prides itself in public service because “it changes the lives of those who participate.” They offer leadership skills that propel success in schools and throughout life.
That passion has sustained for the past 45 years and to honor this milestone, the foundation wants to raise $45,000 to “celebrate grassroots unsung heroes and train young change makers across the country” during their 45 for 45 campaign.
The foundation also wants you to know how you can help keep these ideals going by donating your choice of $45, $450, $4,500 or $45,000.
The $45 donation will provide two coaching sessions at a school in the leadership community of your choice. The $450 donation will provide two low-income youth to become leaders and change makers.
Your $4,500 donation will “transform” three young people into social entrepreneurs, impacting 100,000 lives. The $45,000 donation generates $5.3 million in community benefit and engages 8,000 young people in meaningful youth-led service. You may, however, donate the amount of your own choosing.
