MCCF seeks nominations for volunteer awards


Volunteers play a vital role in the success of most not-for-profit agencies and have a significant impact on the quality of life in our community.

Is there an individual in your nonprofit organization who, without compensation has made a significant, long time contribution of his/her time and talent to make your organization better and our community a better place to live?

If so, the Montgomery County Community Foundation would like to offer the opportunity to local nonprofits to nominate them for a very special award. One adult will be selected as the MCCF 2023 Volunteer of the Year Award and one youth will be selected as the MCCF 2023 Peggy Herzog Youth Volunteer of the Year award winner.

All nominees will be recognized and the winners announced at MCCF’s annual meeting at 4:30 p.m. May 18. The organizations that nominate the winners will receive $1,000 in honor of the winner. The winners will each receive a personal plaque and their names will be added to a perpetual plaque displayed at the foundation.

For rules and a link to the nomination form, visit online at Nominations are due by 5 p.m. April 12.

Questions may be directed to Cheryl Keim, MCCF Grants & Community Relations Director, at 765-362-1267 or

The 2022 Peggy Herzog Youth Volunteer of the Year was Katie Rice, nominated by the Animal Welfare League. The 2022 MCCF Volunteer of the Year was Cynda Mellish, nominated by Rainbows & Rhymes Preschool and Child Care.
