MN Campus Alliance co-founder Anne Phibbs is this year’s recipient of the Power of One Award from Philantrofund Foundation, an area organization that supports GLBT communities throughout the upper Midwest.
The Power of One Award is designed to recognize individuals who work to improve the quality of life for the GLBT community through efforts such as volunteering, activism and/or leadership. Past award recipients have generally had a strong knowledge of the GLBT community and a commitment to serving the community as effective leaders and/or dedicated volunteers.
For the honor of winning this award, Anne Phibbs receives $2,000.00 from Philanthrofund toward a non-profit organization of her choice. She plans to donate her $2,000.00 equally to both the MN Campus Alliance and the Transgender Commission at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
Anne Phibbs was instrumental in founding the Minnesota GLBTA Campus Alliance, and is currently director of systemwide programs for the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Programs Office at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
