|The Margaretta Belin Chamberlin Award has been presented since 1992 when a fund was established by the family of Margaretta Belin Chamberlin both to honor her memory and to recognize accomplishments of women in our community while encouraging their personal and/or professional development. The award is given annually to either a volunteer or professional woman who exemplifies the characteristics of Margaretta, including community-mindedness, tolerance, sensitivity, and leadership.
The Margaretta Belin Chamberlin Award will be presented at the Women in Philanthropy Quarterly Meeting to be announced at a later date. The recipient will receive a monetary award of $1,000 for the purpose of personal development or to donate to a charitable organization of the recipient’s choice.
