The award was established in 2011 to honor a member of the community who represents the fund’s mission and values, an “outstanding Chester County woman who has made substantive contributions through service and/or philanthropy to improve the lives of women and girls through her own time, or talents, or resources,” a news release said.

The Kitchen Table Award is named to celebrate the genesis of the fund: the many conversations held around kitchen tables, board tables, and coffee tables that led to the formation of the fund in 1996.  Last year’s recipients was Betty Moran, a longtime philanthropist whose work with county nonprofits has included playing a key role as a behind-the-scenes advisor and generous donor since the fund’s beginning.
