Lakeland, FL – Cauney Bamberg, Executive Director of the Watson Clinic Foundation, was recently awarded the 2015 Volunteer of the Year honor from the Givewell Foundation and the Greater Polk County chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. The award was given during the 2nd annual National Philanthropy Day awards ceremony held on Wednesday, November 4 at Southeastern University. Bamberg was nominated for the award by EMERGE Lakeland and the American Cancer Society.
Upon her acceptance of the award, Bamberg relayed a message of purpose to attendees of the event, particularly women who work in philanthropic endeavors. “It’s not about the degree on the wall, but the degree to which you go to get over the walls,” she said. “Push forward and always find a way to make a difference in the community you call home.”
