2022 Celebrate Awards

What our community does each year is nothing short of amazing, and we think well-deserving of a celebration. Please join United Way of Greater Chattanooga and Venture Forward on May 19th for the annual Celebrate Awards ceremony Presented by Southern Champion Tray. It will be a unique event to showcase and celebrate the impactful work nonprofit organizations and corporations in our community have done.

As a way of thanking these organizations, we’ll be presenting five awards to those who rose to unprecedented heights in service to their neighbors this past year. The awards for this year are:

– The Volunteer of the Year Award
– The Shaw Innovation in Action Award
– Double Cola Nonprofit of the Year Award
– Collaboration of the Year Award
– Roper Nonprofit Leader of the Year Award

Internationally recognized author, Beth Kanter, will serve as the keynote speaker. Beth Kanter is the author of The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout. With more than three decades of experience in nonprofit sector emerging technology, training, and capacity building, Beth has been named one of the most influential women in technology by Fast Company and one of BusinessWeek’s “Voices of Innovation for Social Media.” Please join us for Beth Kanter’s keynote speech followed by the awards ceremony.
