To the editor:
Do you know someone in Story County who has made a difference in the lives of others? Now is the time to thank them publicly. The Story County Alliance for Philanthropy is preparing for its ninth annual celebration and is asking for Intent to Nominate forms. This is your opportunity!
Last year, the Ames Public Library Friends Foundation Sales Committee was honored with the Outstanding Group Volunteer Fundraiser award. Receiving the award and getting recognized by other philanthropists in our community was very special. Of course, we would keep raising money for the library without the acknowledgment, but volunteering suddenly became more fun.
I encourage you to nominate a philanthropist in your community – someone or some group that gives time, talent and treasure to local nonprofit organizations. It is easy. Just go to storycountyphilanthropy.org and complete an intent form before Friday, June 28.
Watch for the names of recipients in November, and join me in thanking those named and everyone in our community who made a difference.
