Nominators: The deadline for nomination applications was Monday, February 17, 2020 at 5PM. If your nominee is selected, you may be asked to provide photographs and to appear in a United Way of Greater Stark County video.

Each year since 2010, United Way's DeHoff Emerging Philanthropist Award has recognized a Stark County resident age 45 and under who impacts Stark County through direct service and volunteer work. This award honors two of United Way’s most dedicated campaign volunteers. Bob and Linda DeHoff have been involved in numerous fundraising initiatives benefiting the residents of Greater Stark County. The couple recently received The Association of Fundraising Professionals' Outstanding Philanthropist Award.

The winner will receive $5,000 to be donated to the winner's charity of choice (must be a 510 (c) 3 nonprofit health & human services organization). The selected recipient and nominator should plan to attend the United Way of Greater Stark County Annual Meeting, Spring 2019, where the selected recipient will be formally recognized.
