Love Series: Anita Doncaster, Donor

At JMB Award, we're fostering a community of love and support that lasts beyond a single day. That doesn't mean we aren't susceptible to the allure of days dedicated to love. In recognition of Galentine's Day and Valentine's Day, we asked members of our community to share why they love JMB Award. These are their stories.

What I love about being a JMB Award donor can be summed up this way:

  • I love the emphasis on grit. To me, girls with grit are tenacious, creative, and unwavering in their pursuit of their goals—all traits I encourage and nurture in my own daughter.
  • I love the spirit of the award. Out of incredible loss came the opportunity to give girls who have everything it takes to be successful an extra hand, a vote of confidence, and the knowledge that there’s someone who has their back.
  • Finally, I’ve been following the trajectory of the JMB Award, and I’m so impressed by how the scope of the award has expanded to include focus on not just the financial, but also the emotional well-being of the award recipients.

I’m mom to a 15-year-old girl, so supporting the JMB Award is a no-brainer. I can’t wait to see how the award program will grow and add even more value for these girls!
