This year’s Doris Schumm Community Spirit Award was presented to the Whitefish Education Foundation, whose mission is to enhance the quality and scope of educational opportunities for all students of the Whitefish Public Schools.  This special honor comes with a $2,500 grant.

Doris Schumm was a friend to nonprofit organizations in Whitefish and an avid volunteer. She served on the Foundation’s Board of Directors and the Grants Committee before her passing in 2009.
To recognize Dorie and the wonderful community spirit she embraced, the Foundation established the Doris Schumm Community Spirit Award in 2010. Each year, the Grants Committee selects the recipient from the organizations that are involved with the Foundation and embody the community spirit Dorie valued in her own life.
