Upstate ChangeMakers - Class of 2020 Nomination Form

Since 1972 Multiplying Good has recognized a host of national public figures with the Jefferson Award for their outstanding contributions to our country and its communities.  Nationally, the Jefferson Award is the country's highest honor for service and volunteerism, and honorees—individuals including such notable figures as Barbara Bush, Oprah Winfrey, and Bill and Melinda Gates—make up a storied group of American heroes whose dedication to service has inspired others to lead.

Multiplying Good’s goal in South Carolina is to cultivate the next generation of our state’s servant leaders.  With that goal in mind, the organization is currently accepting nominations for the 2020 class of ChangeMakers in the Upstate—rising community leaders age 40 and under who have demonstrated a commitment to service and the potential to truly move the Upstate forward. 

The 2020 class of ChangeMakers will kick off in January with an orientation, reception, and networking event for each of the honorees and their guests.  Throughout the spring these ChangeMakers will work both individually and as a cohort to raise financial support for Students in Action, Multiplying Good’s flagship youth service-learning and leadership development program for high schoolers that is currently active across several Upstate counties.  The 2020 class of ChangeMakers will also participate in fundraising, community, and other networking activities each month with the goal of raising awareness of Students in Action and inspiring even more young leaders to do their part.  The program will culminate in the spring of 2020 with a celebration event, recognizing each of the honorees with a Jefferson Award and celebrating all they have accomplished to make a difference in the community.
