* 1. Our Annual Freeport Area Chamber of Commerce Dinner is quickly approaching on March 30th and we once again want to present an award to an outstanding non-for-profit organization. This is where we need your help. We would appreciate you nominating an organization that you believe has made an extra positive impact on our community over the past year. We realize at the Chamber how difficult it has become to continue to operate these great organizations with all of the social and economical issues we all face today. That is just another reason why we feel so good about offering an award for a top non-for-profit organization in the Freeport area.

The criterion that we at the Chamber require is that our winner be a Chamber member. We also ask that you do not nominate a past winner of the award.

2016-Freeport Public School Fund
2015-Sojourn House
2013-Highland Community College Foundation
2011-Freeport Area Church Cooperative
