The Volunteer of the Year Award is an honor presented by Catholic United Financial to recognize an individual who, through example and accomplishment, provided outstanding volunteer service to his or her community during the past calendar year.
The purpose of this award is to recognize those that have gone that extra “mile” in volunteer service (i.e., meals on wheels, hospital work, visiting shut-ins, etc.). Through their tireless volunteer efforts, those around them have benefited significantly. These are people who rarely say, “No!”, and are always willing to lend a hand.
Catholic United Financial will present a check for $500 in the name of the Volunteer of the Year to the charitable/non-profit organization of the honoree’s choice, and a $500 check will also be awarded to the honoree.
Questions? Contact the Member Engagement for clarification:
Submissions will be ranked by the Member Engagement Department using a scoring system and will be narrowed down to five applicants, then the Catholic United Financial Board of Directors will choose the winner at the May board meeting.
Announcement of the winner will be conducted at Regional Member Gatherings, in publications on social media, in Catholic United publications such as Our Catholic Journey magazine, in the JoinMe newsletter, and on the association website.
