National and Local Awards

On November 21, 1949 General Dwight D. Eisenhower presented 200 recipients with the first Freedoms Foundation National Awards. The ceremony took place in a barn on a colonial farm once occupied by Washington’s troops, which is now the site of the national headquarters of Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge.

This program was intended as a way to say thank you to those whose projects, words or deeds reflect the best of the American spirit of volunteerism by offering constructive solutions to contemporary problems. We search for those doing good work in their communities, people or organizations bringing about the best in the spirit of America.

Help us to find these heroes within our communities!   Click here to obtain a nomination form, or contact our chapter President, Larry Brasher, at 916-250-8867
