Past Recipients

The Women’s Leadership Council Presents the Maude Finch Awards

Maude Finch was the recording secretary of the Rochester Community Chest, who in 1925, when paid $20 for her clerical services, donated those proceeds back to the organization for the common good. This year we recognized Carmen Kane as the 2015 recipient of the Maude Finch Award at United Way's Celebration of Caring and Giving on Tuesday, January 27!
