Dorothy Dellinger "Dot" Marlow Philanthropic Catalyst Award

At Community Foundation, we often refer to Dot as our "founding lady." She joined our organization at a pivotal time, serving as the first female board member, bringing with her the spark that would ignite everything to come. To honor Dot, the Foundation established the Dot Marlow Philanthropic Catalyst Award in 2019.
