We are honored to recognize
Madeline Bozzelli as
the recipient of our 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award.
The name Madeline Bozzelli is synonymous with fundraising throughout
our community. So who better to receive this year’s Lifetime Achievement
Award than she? Originally honored in 2007 for the National Philanthropy
Day Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser Award, Madeline has continued to
serve others through her volunteer efforts.
If she didn't create the event (like the Sugartown Express) she has
definitely served on the committee, often as chair. Her fundraising
skills have benefitted Akron Symphony, Akron Children's Hospital, the
Summit County Historical Society, St. Thomas Hospital, the Akron Blind
Center, the YMCA, the Ohio & Erie Canal Coalition, the Humane Society,
International Institute and a legion of others. Many Boards of Directors
have welcomed her contribution as a member and have seen their agencies
grow as a result of her wisdom and experience.
Madeline has served as the Honorary Committee Chair of "The Melting
Pot ~ A Taste of Many Nations" for Mature Services, Inc., since its
inception in 2005, and she continues to lead the event 10 years later.
There was a time a few years ago when Madeline fell and suffered a
stroke. Not only did she recover, but she came back as the Mature
Services event chair without missing a beat, determined to continue her
good work while demonstrating a strength of commitment that was a lesson
for everyone involved. Each year she serves as the guiding light for new
committee members, and she has been instrumental in garnering support
for not just the fundraiser itself, but the agency as a whole throughout
the year. To date, she has helped the agency raise over $300,000.
Madeline has been tireless in her 40 years of fundraising to support
the Greater Akron community and maintains a lifelong belief in helping
