Outstanding Volunteer Award.png

Sherry Early

Nominated by
Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne


Sherry's commitment to the Community Foundation and particularly the Women's Fund of Greater Fort Wayne is truly exceptional. She has generously shared her time and talent by helping to lead the Women's Fund for the last 3 years and has been instrumental in helping
to seed it's endowment. Sherry was also crucial in helping to launch the Women's Fund initial study by introducing the previous 1974 study to the process and helping to make integral connections so that the Women's Fund could help be established. Without her connectivity, foresight, and tenacity - the Women's Fund of Greater Fort Wayne would not be what it is today.

Sherry's remarkable talent shines through her leadership skills and ability to inspire others. Her strategic thinking and creative problem-solving have greatly contributed to the success not only of the Women's Fund but in strengthening the Community Foundation. Her
knowledge on our Everyone's Economy pillar has proven invaluable in strengthening the entire ecosystem. Her collaborative approach has brought diverse groups together, enriching our community's cohesiveness.

Sherry's unwavering dedication, exceptional leadership, and her contributions exemplify the essence of the Outstanding Volunteer Award. She embodies the spirit of selflessness and community engagement, making a profound impact on our foundation and the lives it touches. We are looking forward to her becoming our next Board Chair.
