Interfaith Humanitarian Award Nominations


MURRIETA – The Interfaith Council of Murrieta and Temecula Valley is looking for nominations for its third annual Humanitarian Award. Nominees may be an individual of any age, youth group, not-for-profit organization, business, faith-based organization or governmental entity. Individuals must live or work in the local area. Online service providers as well as brick and mortar service providers are welcome to apply. National service programs are not considered unless there is strong local participation.

The objective of the award is to honor an individual or organization that exemplifies the objectives of the Interfaith Council, especially cooperation, equity, unity, respect, compassion, dignity, human rights and justice, which are only a few of the virtues and requirements of a peaceful and just society.

Anyone who would like to nominate an individual or organization may request the nomination form by calling 951-698-6116 or emailing, and we will email or mail you the form. Deadline for submission is Sept. 30. Recognition will take place at the annual Night of Gratitude in November.

The IFC seeks to recognize service that demonstrates The Golden Rule, which is found in all religions. The rule addresses reciprocity and is generally stated, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
