The Jordan Award...
Barbara McNeil Jordan & Dr. Henry A. Jordan, 2004 | Profile
The Jordan Award honors a lifetime of exemplary philanthropic leadership.

Philanthropic involvement must be broad and deep in scope, leading to significant long-term accomplishments that ultimately make a real difference in improving the quality of life in Chester County.

Philanthropy is defined as “active efforts to promote human welfare as manifested in donations of money, property, or work to needy persons or to socially useful purposes.” 

Legacy Awards are bestowed annually when nominees of sufficient caliber are made known to the Community Foundation’s Grants/Awards Committee.  Emphasis is placed on those who help create and grow legacy endowments to secure the long-term viability of financing for charitable causes.  All award winners and grantees must demonstrate a strong commitment to Chester County legacy philanthropy. 

Judging criteria include:
    
1. community issues addressed;  personal involvement;  long-term impact  in resolving or improving issues
     2. philanthropic leadership to achieve lasting results and,
     3.  breadth and depth of impact.
