Touchstone Awards 2020

2020 Touchstone Award Ceremony on WDIO

The Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation recognizes the best of the best Northland nonprofit work with the Touchstone Awards. For years, the Touchstone event has been held in person. But because of COVID-19 health concerns, this year's ceremony was broadcast Nov. 17 on WDIO-TV.

Each year, winners are announced in the categories of Generosity, Inclusiveness and Civic Engagement. Nominees for the Inclusiveness and Civic Engagement awards are nonprofits whose projects the Community Foundation has funded recently. The Generosity award winner goes to an individual, couple, or family nominated by the community for donating time, talents or funds to support nonprofit work.
