Heart of Gold





It's nomination time for our 8th Annual Heart of Gold Award and a wonderful opportunity to nominate the special individual you know!  Each year, the LaGrange County Community Foundation accepts nominations to identify and recognize individuals in LaGrange County who have made an extraordinary commitment to volunteerism and serving others. The Heart of Gold Award honors LaGrange County citizens who embrace a volunteer spirit and unselfishly serve others.

The special individual will be chosen based on qualities that reflect their selfless acts of kindness, even in challenging situations, to help individuals and the community take advantage of opportunities and create positive change. Nominations will not be accepted from family members nor for prior recipients of this award.
