The JoDee Herschend Shining Light Award was created in 2019 to celebrate the memory and giving spirit of JoDee Herschend. This award has been presented annually at Herschend University (HU) to the property that best demonstrates a significant positive impact on its immediate community.
Starting at HU 2024, the award will be given to an individual rather than a property.
Grant applications have closed as of the 1/5/24 deadline.
At Herschend, we’re more than just a family entertainment business; we’re a generosity engine. We aim not only to be charitable as a company but to inspire others to give generously, too. It’s with this vision and JoDee’s remarkable philanthropy in mind that the JoDee Herschend Shining Light Award has been reimagined as a grant opportunity.
