Help YOUR Community Champion

There is only one thing as good as making a difference in your community – helping your community champion who goes above and beyond to inspire and make lives better. Royal Neighbors members have a unique opportunity to support local community champions by nominating them for a Nation of Neighbors℠ empowerment grant.

Pamela Crouch is touching lives of cancer patients, survivors, and families through her art therapy organization, Living Proof Exhibit. As a breast cancer survivor herself, Ms. Crouch found comfort and emotional healing while creating art during and after treatments.

If art could help her, Pamela knew that others could benefit from art as well. Her idea started as a simple exhibition created by breast cancer survivors. It has now blossomed into a nonprofit organization that positively impacts those battling all types of cancer.

Pamela was awarded a $10,000 Nation of Neighbors award and empowerment grant for being a change-agent in the lives of those impacted by cancer. The funds will be used to support her organization to help increase the number of people touched and to evaluate expansion into other communities.

“I am thrilled and honored to be recognized as a Nation of Neighbors award winner,” Pamela said. “This is an award that benefits all Quad Citizens touched by cancer. The funds received will allow us to continue to provide programming that reduces stress and offers hope and joy to people impacted by cancer.”

Nation of Neighbors is a Royal Neighbors of America philanthropy program that honors women leaders who are impacting the lives of women and girls. Each year, recipients are selected for an empowerment grant to support their work. To date, Royal Neighbors has awarded more than $2 million to women across the country.
