During a surprise virtual event, The Patterson Foundation awarded a one-time honorarium of more than $450,000 to dozens of nonprofit agencies in attendance for all their hard work in the Season of Sharing campaign. The gift is part of Honoring & Onward, a celebration of The Patterson Foundation’s decade of impact through people, organizations, and communities while continuing to connect, learn, share, evolve and strengthen its efforts to realize shared aspirations.
“The Patterson Foundation is proud to celebrate ten years of helping our neighbors in need through the Season of Sharing campaign,” said Debra Jacobs, president and CEO of The Patterson Foundation. “Without the many partners and agencies donating their time and resources, Season of Sharing would not be able to strengthen the thousands of people it serves in our community. Their efforts are more important than ever during the pandemic, as many in our region find themselves facing significant financial hardship for the first time in their lives.”
