Great Charity Challenge's Anne Caroline Valtin to Receive Community Spirit Award

8th Annual Event Slated for Friday, September 23, 2022

For our eighth year, the Nonprofit Chamber of Palm Beach County will honor an individual who has contributed above and beyond to the nonprofit community in the county. This year’s recipient is Anne Caroline Valtin, Executive Director of the Great Charity Challenge. Under her leadership, hundreds of nonprofits have been awarded a total of more than $12 million through the annual event that teams nonprofits with world-class equestrians.

But, her involvement with nonprofits goes way beyond the Great Charity Challenge. Anne Caroline believes that social change is accomplished through hard work by all members of the community and she puts her philosophy to work through her involvement with many important causes and lends her expertise to others in the community. Through the Great Charity Challenge she has brought new awareness to the international equestrian community and to businesses and they have rallied to invest in nonprofits through the GCC.

The nonprofit community is forever grateful to Anne Caroline and want to recognize how much we value her.


Keynote Speaker James Green PhD, is Director of the Palm Beach County Community Services Department. 

He leads the county’s efforts in an array of programs to assist homeless youth and families, domestic violence victims, senior citizens, veterans, special needs and the farmworker population. He recently engaged leaders across various sectors to begin developing a comprehensive plan to end homelessness and reduce child poverty in Palm Beach County.

In 2015, he served as director of the Outreach and Community Programming (OCP) division of the Palm Beach County Youth Services Department. As director of OCP, he served as a lead strategist for the Birth to 22 Alliance in the development of a cradle-to-career countywide Youth Master Plan.

Legal Scholarship To Be Awarded in Memory of John Foley

The Nonprofit Chamber of Palm Beach County has established the John A. Foley, Esq. Legal Scholarship Fund to honor a man who dedicated his life and career to the nonprofit community in Palm Beach County.

Working at the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County, John established the Nonprofit Legal Assistance Project, providing legal assistance to more than 60 nonprofits for more than 20 years. He did so with passion and compassion and all who knew him considered him a cherished friend. He was honored many times by the nonprofit community for his professionalism, his humility, and his zest for life and for the underserved.

Sadly for all of us who knew him, loved him, benefitted from his friendship or his years of good works, John died in 2021 at the age of 60.

The Nonprofit Chamber will honor his memory through a scholarship to be awarded to a Florida law student who plans to practice Public Interest Law as John did. The scholarship will be awarded at the Chamber’s Community Spirit Awards Luncheon on September 23, 2022.
