RecognizeGood honored Donna Snyder with the 82nd RecognizeGood Legend award in a presentation at BBVA Compass (1703 W 5th St Suite 100, Austin, TX 78703) beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20th, 2019. During this event, RecognizeGood made a $1,000 pay-it-forward donation to Truth Be Told in Donna’s name.
An increasingly-rare Austin native, Donna represents so much of what our community is about. She’s been part of the fabric of our government as a former attorney, she’s immersed herself in the arts, and most of all she’s made giving back to others part of her daily life. Donna’s service to others has been immeasurable over more than a decade since retirement, but collectively she’s amassed over 6,000 hours of volunteerism ranging from priceless strategic expertise to straightforward organizational administration. To put that into perspective, her unpaid volunteerism is equal to three entire years of full-time paid employment!
As a 2019 Legend, Donna is now eligible to participate in RecognizeGood’s Say Thanks Austin campaign, an annual event which presents Central Texas with a unique opportunity to say “thank you” to a group of remarkable individuals who contribute their time and talents to our community. The participant with the most Thank You votes receives a pay-it-forward donation of $10,000 to the nonprofit of their choice.
