NOMINATIONS ARE OPEN!
For the LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GIVERS AWARDS
Each year, the Renton Community Foundation recognizes individuals and organizations in our community that serve as champions in the philanthropic world. These are the ones who never say no. They serve on multiple nonprofit boards, chair important committees, support fundraising events, give personal gifts of cash or in-kind items, and serve as an inspiration for others to follow.
If you know someone who should be considered for the class of 2017, please contact the foundation for a nominating form and return to the Foundation by 5:00 p.m. on November 16. Awards will be presented on February 16, 2017 at our annual CELEBRATE! The Love of Community event.
Just email us for a nominating form: firstname.lastname@example.org
ONLINE AUCTION IS CLOSED!
The Foundation's annual online auction on Bidding For Good is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated, either by donating an item or bidding on an item (even if you didn't win). Your support is appreciated more than you know. Since we take a small fee off of the funds we manage, we don't have to raise as much money as other nonprofits. However, we typically need to raise about $20,000 each year to break even. We do that through a board campaign, from friends of the foundation and Cornerstone (our donor society), and through our online auction.
