Benalla’s Tomorrow Today Foundation has been recognised as an inspiring example of the community foundation sector in Australia.
The 2017 Community Foundation Awards celebrate the achievements of community foundations, their staff, directors and volunteers.
The awards, which were presented during a recent three-day national conference, are run by Australian Community Philanthropy (ACP).
ACP is the peak organisation and network for community foundations in Australia, assisting them to establish, grow and achieve their objectives.
Tomorrow Today was one of two recipients of the 2017 award for enabling and creating impact, positive change and opportunities in their community.
Tomorrow Today Foundation chair Sally Gamble said it was an honour to be recognised with the award.
‘‘It is wonderful that through Tomorrow Today, the combined efforts of so many people in Benalla are receiving national recognition,’’ Ms Gamble said.
‘‘There is real interest in the way our community is coming together to give Benalla’s younger generation every chance to prosper in life.’’
The foundation is also holding its annual celebration and invites all Benalla and district residents to attend next Thursday, November 9, from 5.30pm to 7pm at the Glasshouse Lakeside Community Centre.
