Servant’s Heart Award




Civitan International is happy to announce our new community initiative, the Servant’s Heart Awards. This ready-made service project is designed to help your club or district recognize the unsung heroes in your community serving people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD). The Servant’s Heart Award holds true to the mission of Civitan International, which has served the I/DD community in so many ways over the decades. Participating clubs and districts should plan an award event in April to coincide with Civitan Awareness Month.

To help you plan and prepare for your event, Civitan International has prepared media toolkits. You can download each part by clicking the buttons below or by downloading individually. The first kit includes a variety of collateral including a helpful guidebook, award certificates, logos, and sample ads. The second one includes a social medial schedule, sample posts you can cut and paste, and artwork to go along with the posts. It also includes two videos, including the one above.

If you experience any difficulty with the archived file, or if you want to download only the pieces you need, you can click the individual links below. If you have any questions or if you need assistance, email Terry Schrimscher at
