The Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines is recognizing nonprofit organizations, civic groups and individuals building social capital in our community with the Better Together Award. Social capital is defined as connections among diverse people or groups, based on trust, that enhance cooperation for mutual benefit. Those who build social capital possess a unique set of skills and attitudes that enable them to collaborate effectively, make connections between diverse sectors, bridge differences and nurture social networks to make a difference.
If an individual is selected as the award winner, he/she will receive a $1,000 award, donated to the charitable organization of his/her choice that builds social capital. If a nonprofit organization or civic group is selected as the award winner, it will receive a $2,500 grant to use toward its social capital work.
The Better Together Award recipient will be announced at the Community Foundation's 2012 Celebration Luncheon and Report to the Community on May 3 at the Downtown Des Moines Marriott.
