2017 Celebration of Giving

The Celebration of Giving was created to raise the profile of charitable giving by county residents and businesses, and especially to encourage all of us to “give where you live.”

Every year, several hundred friends join in the annual Celebration, including past and present CFMC Advisory Board members, business leaders, local foundation representatives, wealth advisors, elected officials, leaders from the region’s premier nonprofits, and many of the people who house their giving funds at The Community Foundation. 

This year, we look forward to honoring Cliff White as the 2017 Montgomery County Philanthropist of the Year.

The award recognizes individuals and organizations who too often are unrecognized for their important contributions—unsung heroes who have quietly, tirelessly, and unselfishly demonstrated outstanding commitment and service to improving and enhancing the quality of life in our community.
