South Bend honors nonprofit excellence
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The 2014 Leighton Award, which recognizes nonprofit excellence, was handed out Wednesday in South Bend at the Century Center.
The community foundation says it is the biggest award in the country for a nonprofit at $100,000.
The recipient this year is the Fischoff National Chamber Music Association.
"You know the organizations they run the gambit of serving our community. So you have arts organizations that are celebrating the arts and you have human services that are providing the catering needs of the most vulnerable in our community," said Community Foundation member Christopher Nanni.
La Casa De Amistad and downtown South Bend also got special recognition awards.
