Thank you for your interest in the HALO Award Stories project!


What is the HALO Award Stories project?
HALO Award Stories is a community storytelling project illustrating the impact of the HALO Award. We invite members of the HALO Award community to share their experiences through brief video “Stories.” In Summer 2021, we look forward to sharing a collection of your videos on our website,
Why is the Foundation collecting HALO Award Stories?
This project will shine a light on what the HALO community has learned and accomplished over the past decade. We believe your diversity of voices and experiences will help illustrate the impact of the Award on individuals, organizations, and communities.
In sharing your Stories, we hope to ignite an interest in volunteerism, as well as inspire:
  • individuals to volunteer
  • nonprofit leaders to take a strategic approach to volunteerism
  • funders to consider funding capacity building through strategic volunteer management
Why now?
This year begins the 10th year of the HALO Award, an ideal time to reflect on the program’s impact on volunteers, nonprofit organizations, and the communities they serve.
Who can participate?
Anyone who has had a meaningful connection to the HALO Award. That includes leaders, staff, and board members from recipient organizations, HALO program alumni, individual volunteers, Award luncheon speakers, and selection committee members. If the HALO Award has made a difference for you, we would love to hear from you.
