We’re happy to share some exciting news: Our new Impact Springfield program is launching the first pilot projects.
Many of you heard about this at the One Big Class Reunion in June. Impact Springfield is a way for area organizations to submit proposals to Leadership Springfield alumni in order to get leadership support for short-term projects. Modeled after a very successful program in Louisville, Kentucky, Impact Springfield is designed to enhance our mission of connecting leaders to serve the community. This is a great chance to give of your time and talents!
Here are the details on our first project, which comes from the Lost & Found Grief Center:
Lost & Found is looking to build awareness for its inaugural Whole Heart Award, to be presented in November as a part of Grief Awareness Month. This award will recognize and honor one individual and one business who have demonstrated exceptional support for a grieving family.
“We hope to provide wonderful examples to the community by recognizing the stories of those who have done something meaningful and very helpful to those who are grieving,” explained Dr. Karen Scott, co-founder of Lost & Found Grief Center. “We’re teaching by providing examples, as well as thanking those who took the time to reach out to a grieving family.”
Here’s where Impact Springfield comes in: Lost & Found is seeking relational and strategic thinkers to help them develop the award process. If this project fits your skill sets and you are interested in learning more about how you can get involved, contact Jamie Fields.
