Spirit of Philanthropy

The Spirit of Philanthropy Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Community Foundation board members and recognizes outstanding philanthropic achievement within the Putnam County community. This award is not awarded each year, but after careful consideration, the Board has selected two recipients this year.

If you are a lifelong resident of Putnam County, there is a good chance you either know or know of Vivian Whitaker and Todd Lewis. Their commitment to the town of Cloverdale, and specifically to the Cloverdale Dollars for Scholars program, as well as Putnam County through their dedication to the Putnam County Community Foundation, has them involved in quite a bit.

On behalf of Putnam County, congratulations Todd & Vivian! Your commitment to this county is exemplified each and every day.
