FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With a passion for volunteerism and vision to foster the same in others, OtterCares® Foundation Founder and President Nancy Richardson was honored yesterday as a 2012 Woman of Distinction by the Northern Colorado Business Report.
One of 11 women recognized during the fourth annual Women of Distinction Awards program in Loveland, Colo., Richardson was recognized as an “Outstanding Volunteer.” Honorees were selected from among more than 100 nominations for their exceptional dedication to business, community and family.
Richardson credits her parents for igniting the philanthropic spark when she was young, noting it is her hope that the children impacted by the OtterCares Foundation will be inspired to give back one day as well.
“I’m deeply humbled and honored to receive this amazing award,” Richardson said. “My desire, and vision for OtterCares, is to see that every young person finds their passion. I truly believe that if the seed is sown when a person is young, that volunteering and giving back becomes the very fabric of who they are.”
Richardson led the development and 2010 launch of the OtterCares Foundation under the principle that “to whom much is given, much is expected.” She currently serves as president directing strategy for the organization’s giving initiatives and mission to educate and empower youth towards positive growth.
