IMPACT AWARD - What Is It?
The Impact Awards is an award presented by the Fashion Umbrella Foundation annually that recognizes individuals who inspire hope for the future of youth and/or implement changes needed in our communities.
The social, academic and cultural challenges that currently exist in our society often rely on the government's intervention or existing programs for resolution. The Fashion Umbrella Foundation celebrates the power of a person (organization), with leadership skills and a vision, to mobilize and implement projects and programs that maximize the impact of addressing issues that exist from their vantage point. These individuals serve as role models for our youth as the Fashion Umbrella Foundation works to provide the resources and opportunities to direct their path to success.
Proceeds from the Masquerade Gala & Impact Award are designated to the programs of the Fashion Umbrella Foundation.
