Twilight Community Leadership Awards
The Twilight Foundation Community Leadership Awards recognize individuals and organizations whose leadership has
made a significant impact in their particular Detroit metro area communities. This work may confront societal
or civic issues, address health or environmental concerns, or promote arts and humanities.
We celebrate people who are rolling up their sleeves, taking initiative, and solving problems in their neighborhoods and communities.
This year a group of less than Ten Community Leaders will receive Honoree awards at the Gala.
The Community Leadership Awards showcase individual or organizational excellence in leadership as demonstrated by outstanding initiative,
impact of work, and inspiration of others. With each award, The Twilight Foundation publicly affirms present achievements, seeks to encourage
further work on the part of the recipients, and hopes to motivate others to follow their lead in service to Detroit metro area communities.
