A Celebration of Philanthropy – Pay it Forward Awards

Dec 01, 2014 | Posted in News

The Communities of Giving Legacy Initiative (CGLI) will recognize the 2014 Pay it Forward awardees. The Pay it Forward Award honors individuals or organizations that pay tribute to people who have contributed to their success by passing on the gift of inspired commitment of service to youth of color in our community. This year’s awards recognize four Western New York organizations that collectively connected more than 800 youth if color with people, places and experiences that can help them to build a foundation for future success.
