Join us at the annual Founder’s Award Luncheon, a celebration of philanthropy hosted by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties.
The highlight of the afternoon will be a special presentation of the Founder's Award honoring the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The Knight Foundation is a national foundation with strong local roots. It invests in journalism, the arts, technology and in the success of cities where brothers John S. and James L. Knight once published newspapers - including Palm Beach County. The Foundation's goal is to foster informed and engaged communities.
Keynote speaker Alberto Ibarguen is president, CEO and trustee of the Knight Foundation. He will discuss the importance of community engagement and detail some of the bigger projects Knight is working on in our county. We’ll also recognize our 2016/2017 competitive grant recipients.
