Everyday thousands of volunteers take action to make Santa Cruz County a more vibrant and connected place to live. We are so excited to celebrate the folks who give their time, talent, and resource to improve our quality of life at the 13th Annual Be the Difference Awards.
Who do you think should be standing on the stage with us this fall? We need your help to honor our local trailblazers for good– the extraordinary individuals, groups, non-profits, and businesses who transform Santa Cruz County through volunteerism.
Share your 2019 Be the Difference Award Nomination by Friday August 23rd at 5PM.
The top 50 nominees will be recognized at our Lunch Gala on October 10th at the Cocoanut Grove and selected individuals in each category will receive special honors through a video developed in partnership with KION/CBS.
Last year nearly 400 civic leaders, non-profit partners, and community champions attended the event.
For the local non-profit sector, our success is rooted in the connections we build and the people we engage to advance our missions. This is our chance to thank the stellar volunteers and business partners who invest in our organizations. It is also an incredible opportunity to highlight the incredible value that nonprofits bring to the community.
We look forward to receiving your submission.
