The chosen agency for this year’s UNITED WAY G. BRADLEY WANZER, JR. AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE will be revealed during United Way Volunteer Salute Night on Thursday, September 1 at AutoZone Park and again at our Day of Caring kickoff rally on Friday, September 16.
The Award honors Brad Wanzer’s 31-year career at our United Way and his legacy of caring. It is the highest honor an agency in our partner network can receive, recognizing the highest standards of service to our community.
The award focuses on four standards of excellence. The chosen agency receives a $25,000 stipend to use in their work for our local Mid-South community.
The criterion for the G. Bradley Wanzer, Jr. Award For Excellence focuses on how a United Way of the Mid-South agency embraces these four standards:
2. Outcome measures
3. Collaborations in the Mid-South community
4. Partnership with United Way of the Mid-South
Each of the four standards of practice was important to G. Bradley Wanzer, Jr. and represent different aspects of his work across our region. Wanzer passed away in 2005, and the award was created to honor his outstanding work and dedication to our community’s nonprofit sector.
