For Good Awards will provide $50,000 to Nonprofits
Nominations open for retirees giving back

(Broward County, Fla. 9.23.11) – Three nonprofits are set to share $50,000 as part of the Community Foundation of Broward’s For Good Awards. The Awards recognize retired Broward residents who have chosen to invest their time and talents to make Broward better.

The For Good Awards prize money will be donated to the charities of the winners’ choice. The awards are part of the Foundation’s “Re-engage for Good” campaign aimed at ensuring retirees use their skills and interests to make a difference in their communities in an “encore career.”

“These encore careers, that combine personal interests and skills with critical community work can unleash a wave of innovative ideas and solutions.  The potential to improve our community is tremendous,” said Linda Carter, president and CEO of the Foundation.

Nominations for the For Good Awards are being accepted through October 21st at cfbroward.org. Applicants must be inspirational leaders who have retired from their primary career and begun works that improve our community.  The three winners will be announced on February 14 at a luncheon at the Signature Grand. 

Florida’s senior growth is the largest in the nation and more than 500,000 baby boomers now live in Broward. Every six seconds a U.S. citizen turns 60.

“Our goal is to foster a more engaged citizenry and a stronger Broward,” said Carter.  “Many baby boomers will soon retire. If this generation of active, educated and highly successful individuals is not given the opportunity to re-engage in meaningful ways we will lose so much valuable energy, wisdom and experience,” Carter said.  

The Awards are made possible by The Harry T. Mangurian, Jr. Foundation, Inc. Program partners include BNY Mellon, AutoNation, Signature Grand, The Wasie Foundation, Lifestyle Magazines, the Sun Sentinel, KPMG and John Knox Village.
