Please join us (virtually!) for an evening of celebration at our Women in Philanthropy Annual Event on Thursday, October 22nd at 5:30 p.m.

During this event, we will share the notable highlights of Women in Philanthropy (WIP) from 2020 and the impact WIP has had on women, girls, and their families throughout the year.

In addition, join us as we honor two dynamic women in our community through the Margaretta Belin Chamberlin Award and the Roseann Smith Alperin Award—two awards that are held at the Scranton Area Community Foundation.

The Margaretta Belin Chamberlin Award is presented annually to a woman whose vision, dedication and courage has enhanced the quality of life and expanded the opportunities for the people within her community and whose creative interests, energies and service to others have contributed substantially to the betterment of her community. The 2020 Margaretta Belin Chamberlin Award recipient is Mary-Pat Ward.

The Roseann Smith Alperin Award is presented annually to an outstanding woman who exhibits the capacity to lead, motivate, and inspire others and the community she serves. The 2020 Roseann Smith Alperin Award recipient is Linda Robeson.
