WomenOnCall's Inaugural Impact Award

Thank You

Tell us your story in one page or less!

WomenOncall member organizations, here's your chance to nominate and recognize the WomenOnCall volunteer who has made a significant, positive impact on your organization. Share how one of the volunteers that you met through WomenOnCall has helped your organization achieve an important goal and/or accomplish a key task. Whether you met the volunteer via our website or at one of our Meet & Match events, we want to hear your story.

At our 10th Anniversary Meet & Match on February 23rd, we will celebrate one organization and their volunteer with a special award and thank you. It's a great way to thank your volunteer for her help and for your organization to be recognized.

Our panel of judges will review applications in February, and the winner will be notified prior to February 23rd.
