Health Charities Seeks Nominees for Community Health Award

St. Luke's Episcopal Health Charities' Community Health Leadership Program honors a nonprofit leader for his or her work in improving the health of vulnerable populations within the 57-county Episcopal Diocese of Texas mission field each year. The recipient receives $50,000 to be presented to the 501(c)3 nonprofit agency of their choice. All nominees should embody the operating values of the Charities: informed action, collaboration and empowerment.


Now in its seventh year, the Community Health Leadership Award was created to honor the not fully-recognized efforts of one outstanding nonprofit community health leader who is motivated to use his or her knowledge and skills to reach out and advance community health in body, mind and spirit. We are eager to learn more about nominees, their agencies and their leadership vision.


Nomination forms and guidelines are attached and available at the Charities’ new Web site Nominations are due by noon July 7, 2011.


The selected nominee will be notified of his or her selection in September. Both honoree and nominator will be recognized at the annual Bishop’s Leadership Council dinner.


As part of the healing ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, the Bishop’s Leadership Council provides the Charities with long-term support of its mission and extends the reach of the Charities’ endowment through an annual giving program of individual pledges that are collectively applied to the highest priorities affirmed by voting Council members annually.
