Submissions for 2023 Spirit of Minnie Rubek Award
Event Category 

Minnie Rubek was a member of the housekeeping staff at Interstate Power and Light for many years. Upon her passing, she left her estate to the Community Welfare fund—the predecessor of the Community Foundation—in what was a transformative gift for the organization and the greater community. Her work and dedication over many years made a lasting—albeit quiet—impact on the community as a whole. 

The Spirit of Minnie Rubek recognition honors a nonprofit employee (leader or staff member) or founder of a Linn County nonprofit organization who has gone “above and beyond” in their commitment and dedication to their organization and its mission, thereby enhancing the overall effectiveness of the organization. They exhibit the spirit of Minnie Rubek in their nonprofit work. Board members and volunteers are not eligible for this recognition.

Recognition of honorees will be at the Nonprofit Party at the Market on Thursday, September 14, 2022, from 4:30-6 p.m. at NewBo City Market, 1100 3rd Street SE, Cedar Rapids.
