The DeHoff Emerging Philanthropist of Stark County Award is in honor of two of United Way’s most dedicated campaign volunteers. Bob and Linda DeHoff served as the Alexis de Tocqueville Society co-chairs for over a decade, assisting in reaching donors who contribute gifts of $10,000 or more. During the 11 years they served as co-chairs, the DeHoffs led efforts to raise more than $11.6 million to benefit residents of greater Stark County.
The DeHoffs presented the award on March 20, 2013 at United Way's Annual Meeting. Congratulations to Derek Gordon, winner of the 2013 Award!
