Cornerstone of Our Community Award Program

The dictionary defines a cornerstone as a fundamental building block on which the foundation of something rests.

At the Foundation, we keep our eyes on the horizon and seek ways to bring about a better future for all. Our organization is a story in progress, written today with the help of thousands of people across our region, spanning generations. As we celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we want you to help us recognize the "cornerstones" of our community, the people who have helped make our community a better place. Superior Toyota's generous $10,000 50th Anniversary sponsorship will be divided as grants to honor the winners of the Cornerstone of Our Community Awards.

The nomination process for this program has now closed. Announcement of Cornerstone Award recipients will begin in late April. Each week for 10 weeks, another winner will be announced. The winner will get to identify a charitable fund of the Foundation to receive a $500 grant in his/her honor and the corresponding agency/cause will also receive $500, for a total of $1,000 in the honoree's name. Each honoree will also personally be given a special Fenton Glass vase, gold in color, in honor of their recognition as a "Cornerstone of the Community" during the 50th Anniversary Year of the Foundation. Award announcements will conclude June 10th.
