The Daily Point of Light Award honors individuals and groups creating meaningful change in communities across America. Each weekday, one volunteer or volunteer effort is recognized with the Daily Point of Light Award.
The Daily Point of Light Award was established by former President George H.W. Bush to engage individuals, families, businesses and groups to solve community problems through voluntary service. During his presidency, President Bush distributed 1,020 Daily Point of Light Awards, placing volunteer service at the top of his agenda. President Bush continues to sign all of the awards today.
Do you know an individual or group that is inspiring change through voluntary action? Recognize their good work by submitting a nomination for the Daily Point of Light Award. If selected, your nominee will join an esteemed group of volunteers recognized for their leadership and voluntary service, and receive a certificate signed by President George H.W. Bush and Points of Light CEO Michelle Nunn honoring their achievement.
Daily Point of Light - Chad Pregracke
I think of Points of Light as the soul of America. They are ordinary people who reach beyond themselves to touch the lives of those in need, bringing hope and opportunity, care and friendship. By giving so generously of themselves, these remarkable individuals show us not only what is best in our heritage but what all of us are called to become.
- President George H. W. Bush
