The Award

The Fernando Award is the only award in the San Fernando Valley that recognizes the Spirit of Volunteerism.  The Fernando Award Foundation believes that through volunteering, you can be a positive influence on young lives, help older individuals remain independent in their own homes, clean up the environment, offer your professional skills to local nonprofit groups, and lend your talents to strengthening our communities in countless ways.

Besides recognizing a noteworthy community volunteer each year, The Fernando Award organization also awards scholarships to students who have been leaders of volunteerism in their schools, inspiring a new generation of philanthropy.
