Presenting the 2nd Annual

Kate Dewey Award

For Lifetime Achievement in Public Service

In 2017 the Jefferson Awards Foundation Pittsburgh dedicated the first Lifetime Achievement in Public Service Award to Kate Dewey in tribute to her lifetime of service in growing and supporting organizations and individuals that better our communities, especially here in Pittsburgh. Kate exemplifies the organization’s mission to "Power others to have the maximum impact on the things they care about most."  Now, each year we accept nominations from the local community in Allegheny County to honor and recognize other individuals with this prestigious award for meritorious lifetime service.
