Philanthropy is more than the act of giving money. Giving time, specialised talent or a supportive voice can be just as important. There are many ways to become involved … ways that will be enjoyable while helping the Foundation achieve its goals.
Ambassadors are crucial
The Foundation’s Ambassador Program has evolved to include individuals, families, donors, sponsors and businesses committed to benefiting Buderim. The success of the Foundation relies heavily on the amount of time and talent Ambassadors are willing to give to the organisation. In recognition of the extraordinary service provided by Ambassadors the Foundation introduced the Les Day Medal… the Foundation’s highest accolade and awarded only occasionally to recognise especially high levels of service.
The Les Day Medal is named after the late Les Day who was a founding Director of the Buderim Foundation and first Treasurer. His involvement was crucial to the early development and success of the Foundation.
Ambassador Alex Sweet received the Les Day Medal in 2014 for her outstanding work and dedication. Since the Foundation was launched in 2004, Alex has used her graphic design skills to establish the Foundation’s visual identity. And over the years she has produced advertisements, brochures, flyers, newsletters, annual reports, banners and signage, and has been responsible for the development, design and on-going maintenance of the Foundation’s website.
The more Ambassadors, the stronger the Foundation. We’d love you to join!
