Keeping nonprofits going is hard work. These organi- zations often cannot pay top wages. Give!Local’s Julian Awards, named for Asheville philanthropist Julian Price, honor people who have chosen to work for a good cause even though it doesn’t involve a glamorous paycheck.
This year’s three winners will each receive a $1,000 cash prize. The prizes were made possible by a donor who wishes to remain anonymous, in the spirit of Julian Price. This year’s award winners will be the guests of honor at the opening party for the Give!Local campaign, which will be held at Highland Brewing, Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 6 p.m.
To qualify for Julian Awards, nominees must:
• Be doing exceptional, creative work in the nonprofit sector,
• Work at least 30 hours per week for a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization in Buncombe, Henderson, Haywood or Madison counties,
• Earn $35,000 or less annually.
The Julian award was made possible this year by an anonymous philanthropist in the spirit of Julian Price. It is awarded in conjunction with Give!Local.
