Guiding Light’s Evans Tapped for Service Award

Written by Paul R. Kopenkoskey on . Posted in Local

evansGuiding Light Donor Relations Officer Bob Evans has been named one of Senior Neighbors' 16 Over 60 for his engagement in the community and impact on the lives of others. Now in its fourth year, the award program annually selects 16 individuals over the age of 60 in Kent County who have inspired others and positively impacted the community through business excellence and other extraordinary efforts.

For the past five years, Evans' role with Guiding Light has focused on nurturing donor relationships. He helps donors structure their stewardship donations so their contributions can have the greatest impact on individuals who are struggling with homelessness or addiction.

Prior to his role with Guiding Light, Evans worked in case management for faith-based nonprofit organizations for many years. He has maintained relationships with about 15 of his former clients, continuing to provide them guidance and support.

"While case management was my first love, I've found a second love in fundraising in my 60s," Evans said. "I've been able to continue my passion for helping others through many volunteer roles in the community, continued relationships with my former clients and a full-time position as a donor relations officer at Guiding Light.
