The Cape Area Community Foundation was named an Affiliate of the Year at the annual Affiliate Conference for the Community Foundation of the Ozarks.
The CFO selected five affiliates, each representing segments of its 49-member affiliate network, for the annual Affiliate of the Year first-place honors on Nov. 9 in Springfield. The CACF received $2,000 for its unrestricted grantmaking fund in recognition of its excellent work in 2017-18.
The five Affiliate of the Year award winners were selected based on their efforts to present philanthropic programming and provide leadership in their communities; develop new funds; recruit and retain strong board members; and offer community grantmaking opportunities. The other top awards went to the Community Foundation of the Hermann Area, Inc., the Truman Lake Community Foundation, based in Clinton, the Barton County Community Foundation and the Joplin Regional Community Foundation.
Among its accomplishments cited for the award, the CACF opened two new endowment funds, added three new board members and hosted a meeting for area professional advisors. The board members are: Michelle Jones, president; Moe Sandfort, secretary; Craig Bohnsack, treasurer; Norman Glaus; Stan Irwin; Trudy Lee; Ken Lucy; Dale Rauh; John Ryan; and Robbie Guard, Board Advisor.
The CACF, founded in 2015, holds assets of $439,761 as of June 30, 2018.
