The Meyer Foundation, a leading funder of nonprofits serving the Washington, DC region, has just awarded one of three 2011 Exponent Awards -- which recognize outstanding nonprofit executive directors -- to LEDC Executive Director Manny Hidalgo. "I'm extremely grateful to the Meyer Foundation for recognizing how hard we at LEDC have worked to fulfill our mission in the region," Hidalgo said. "It's been an honor to lead this organization during a time when our services have been needed most. We wouldn't have been able to rise to the occasion without our awesome staff and supportive board. For me, personally, I couldn't have done it without my loving family, especially my wife Ellisa." The Meyer Foundation created the Exponent Awards in 2006 to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of some of the DC region's most talented, visionary, and effective nonprofit executives—and to provide funds to sustain and further develop their leadership and their organizations. Recipients' organizations receive a grant of $100,000 over two years to support leadership development.
