21st Century Council Gant-Kaufman Awards

June 2014

The 21st Century Council, a Tallahassee-Leon County community improvement non-profit, is pleased to announce an endowment established to honor two founding members.

Roger Kaufman, Ph.D. and James L. “Jack” Gant, Ph.D. are two nationally and internationally recognized scholars in their fields. In addition to their world-wide speaking, consulting and training activities, both men have given much time, energy and expertise to their local community. They were integral in the establishment of the 21st Century Council nearly 20 years ago as a non-partisan coalition of citizens seeking to impact policies and practices that maintain or improve the quality of life for all our citizens. In recognition of their commitment, the Council has established an endowment at the Community Foundation of North Florida to support two annual awards in their names.

For more information on how to support this endowment and to support the awards please read this flyer.
