KCF seeks philanthropic nominees

The Kitsap Community Foundation (KCF) will present three distinguished philanthropy awards to outstanding individuals and businesses at the Kitsap County Celebration of Philanthropy in May.

Kol Medina, executive director of the foundation, is asking for the public’s assistance in finding the most deserving supporters of philanthropy in Kitsap County.

“We aren’t always aware of the most deserving individuals and businesses and are appreciative of the public’s help in identifying worthy nominees,” Medina said.

KCF is currently accepting nominations for the following three awards:

Spirit of Philanthropy Award: Honors an individual, couple, or family who exhibit a deep commitment and heartfelt dedication to philanthropy. Nominees should have a proven record of exceptional generosity who, through direct financial support and/or direct involvement, demonstrate outstanding civic and charitable responsibility and whose generosity and involvement encourages others to take philanthropic leadership roles in our community.

Outstanding Citizen Award: Honors a Kitsap County resident who has a proven history of giving generously of  his/her time to local nonprofit organizations or directly to people in need or activities that benefit our community.

Business Making a Difference Award: For-profit business with a proven track record of making a positive difference in our community. The business that receives this award must be a Kitsap-based business.
