Dec. 1, 2009

The Women and Girls Fund of Waukesha County, a permanent fund of the Waukesha County Community Foundation (WCCF), is accepting nominations for its prestigious Women of Distinction Awards. Nominations are due Friday, January 29, 2010 for the three competitive award categories: Women of Distinction, Family of Women of Distinction and Young Woman of Tomorrow.

 

Past winners have been recognized for their public service, philanthropy and commitment to Waukesha County communities. They have reperesented excellence in their professions, provided visionary leadership and served as inspiritational leaders and mentors. Typically, the honorres include three Women of Distinction, one Family of Distinction to include related mothers, daughters, grandduaghters, daughters-in-law and stepdaughters, and one young woman under the age of 25 as the Young Woman of Tomorrow.

 

The honorees will be recognized at the 26th Annual women of Distinction Awards Luncheon, hosted by the Women and Girls Fund, which is scheduled for Tuesday, May 11th at the Country Springs Hotel and Conference Center in Waukesha.

 

"This event has become the platform to recognize and honor local women of distinction who have made a huge difference in their profession and our communities, and have in turn touched so many lives," said Kay Lettenberger, Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Women and Girls Fund of Waukesha County. "The nomination process is a simple one, and we hope everyone takes this opportunity to nominate the remqarkable women they know."

 

Nomination forms are available by calling Lynne Foltz at the WCCF office (262) 513-1861 or on the Foundation's website, www.waukeshafoundation.org under the Women and Girls Fund where they can be submitted electronically.

 

Proceeds from the annual Women of Distinction Awards luncheon benefit the Women and Girls Fund of Waukesha County, which provides grants to programs and services of non-profit organizations that help women and girls of Waukesha County to lead better lives. Grants will be awarded to organizations at the luncheon following a competitive grants process.

 

In 2009, $47,000 in grants was awarded to 9 area non-profit organizations. Recipients were selected by the volunteer Grants Review Committee of the Women and Girls Fund in a competitive review of proposals submitted. An additional $5,000 was donated to organizations selected by the 2009 Women of Distinction award winners.

 

The WCCF, a tax-exempt public charity founded in 1999, is a pool of donors' charitable endowment funds that are invested and managed to provide grants for non-profit organizations, most of which are in Waukesha County. It is governed by a volunteer board of leading citizens to forever benefit the many valued charitable organizations in this area.
