The Community Foundation of St. Joseph County is making some exciting changes to our Leighton Award for Nonprofit Excellence, including a significantly larger prize and a new application cycle schedule.
The Leighton Award was established in 1999 as a $100,000 challenge grant, designed to help the winning organization build an endowed fund at the Community Foundation. The award recognizes excellence, attracts permanent sustaining resources to our community’s best charities, and engages local charities in a process of continuous improvement. This past fall, the Community Foundation awarded its fifteenth Leighton Award, to the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition.
