Golden Apple Foundation named a 2023 Excelsior Finalist

The recipients of the Excalibur Award are individuals who have given back to our communities in extraordinary ways. They come from many backgrounds and professional ambitions, but each has devoted a significant portion of their time and talent to serving others. 

The Excelsior Award recipients are organizations or initiatives that strive to strengthen the people of our region and the places they call home. They, too, represent a diverse range of sectors: arts and culture, health, human services, education, economic development, recreation, volunteerism, and more. Over the years, their names may have changed but the vast majority are still working hard to create a healthier, more resilient, and more vibrant Northern Illinois.

Golden Apple is honored to be named a finalist alongside Hoo Haven and Rockford Promise this year for this prestigious community award.

It is free to attend the event; however seats are limited, so if you would like to go, you MUST register here. For more information including past recipients, see the award site here.

Thank you to all who encompass our Golden Apple family: staff, board, volunteers, Teacher Academy, award and scholarship nominees and recipients and their family members! We do what we do to inspire, celebrate and support excellence in education in our community, for our teachers, schools, students and community and couldn’t do it without all of you.
