The CCWH is celebrating its 50th Anniversary by setting up an Endowment Fund to ensure the future of the organization and the annual CCWH awards. The Endowment Fund will remain separate from the general fund that pays for the general day to day costs of the organization and the $24,000 in awards given each January at the CCWH Awards Luncheon at the AHA. The funds in the Endowment fund will be invested and the income generated will contribute to the funding of the awards. (Donation information for the 50th Anniversary Fund and CCWH Awards is below.)
The CCWH offers the six awards to help reach its organizational goals. For a full award description, current application form and information about previous award recipients, please read more about each award.
The deadline for receipt of all 2020 applications is May 15, 2020.
