RANDOLPH —Gifford is seeking applicants for the 2020 Philip D. Levesque Memorial Community Award, a $1,000 grant given annually to a local organization involved in the arts, health, community development, education, or the environment.

The Gifford Board of Trustees established the award in 1994 in memory of Levesque, Gifford’s president and chief executive officer from 1973-1994.

“Philip Levesque was an admired leader who was dedicated to serving our communities in the White River Valley,” said Gifford Director of Development Ashley Lincoln. “His legacy of generosity continues with this award, and we look forward to reviewing applications from the many community-focused organizations in our area.”

Previous award recipients include VerShare, Bethel Recreation Department, Safeline, Stagecoach, Orange County Parent Child Center, and Quin Town Senior Center.

Applications for the 2020 award must be made in writing by Monday, Feb. 17, and include a detailed one-page description of a community project, estimated budget and timeline for project completion, expected results and benefits, and a copy of the organization’s 501 (c) (3) certificate.

Completed applications may be sent to The Philip D. Levesque Memorial Fund, Gifford Medical Center Development Office, 44. S. Main St., Randolph, VT 05060.

A committee of hospital staff and Levesque’s family will review applications and select a winner.

The 2020 award recipient will be announced March 14 at Gifford’s Annual Meeting.
