Chamberlin Award Nomination Window Now Open

logo_safThe Scranton Area Community Foundation is accepting nominations now until August 15, 2018, for the 2018 Margaretta Belin Chamberlin Award, which is presented annually to a woman who demonstrates commitment to community, ingenuity in response to community need, and leadership in empowering and transforming the lives of women and girls in the community. Nominations are open to anyone who wishes to recommend a female candidate who has made an impact in the NEPA community.

The award has been presented since 1992, when a fund was established by the family of Margaretta Belin Chamberlin both to honor her memory and to recognize accomplishments of women in our community while encouraging their personal and/or professional development.

The Margaretta Belin Chamberlin Award will be presented at the Scranton Area Foundation’s Women in Philanthropy Annual Event in November where the recipient will receive a monetary award of $1000.

To submit a nomination, the nomination form must be submitted electronically to or by mail to: Attn: Dana Hunter, Administrative Coordinator, Scranton Area Community Foundation, 615 Jefferson Ave., Suite 102, Scranton, PA 18510.
