Awards & Recognition

The Cedar Falls Community Foundation annually recognizes donors, supporters, and grant recipients at the September Community Builder Celebration.  The event moves between venues in the community and is open to the public.

In addition, from time to time, the Foundation awards the Melendy Spirit Award to individuals, families, groups, or organizations who have made outstanding community contributions that have enhanced, improved, or positively affected the overall quality of life in Cedar Falls, through philanthropic or other means.
