Community Foundation of the Lowcountry teamed up with one its most generous supporters to create the Joan and Wade Webster Community Impact Award. The award will recognize an individual within the Foundation’s four-county service territory (Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, and Jasper) that has made a recent significant contribution to improving the quality of life in the Lowcountry, and has demonstrated visionary leadership in a community activity or on behalf of a community organization. This is not a lifetime achievement award. The award winner will receive a $10,000 grant to bestow to a charitable organization based in the Foundation’s service territory, as well as a keepsake to memorialize the honor.
Nomination forms are available to download on the Community Foundation website. The fillable PDF should be completed and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Answers to the three questions/statements should be included in the body of the email. You can also pick up a nomination form at the Community Foundation office located on 4 Northridge Dr., Suite A, Hilton Head Island, SC. The deadline to submit your nomination is January 17, 2023.
The inaugural Joan and Wade Webster Community Impact Award will be presented at Community Foundation of the Lowcountry’s Annual Community Meeting. The free event will take place on March 29, 2023 from 4:30-6:30 pm at Hilton Head’s Arts Center of Coastal Carolina.
