The Jacksonville, Florida-based MaliVai Washington Kids Foundation was recognized as a Merit Finalist for Mutual of America's Community Partnership Award during a luncheon held at the Hyatt Regency on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013, in Jacksonville, Fla.
 
Mutual of America Foundation's CEO and Chairman Thomas Gilliam, along with Vice Chair Ted Hearns, also presented MWKF Founder MaliVai Washington and Executive Director Terri Florio with a $20,000 donation.
 
"Being recognized by Mutual of America is certainly an honor and we appreciate the time the committee took to look deeper into our mission and vision for Jacksonville's youth," Washington said. "It is without a doubt that our key partnerships have been instrumental in our success. We are appreciative of their efforts as well as Mutual of America for recognizing our continued efforts to improve the lives of Jacksonville's most at-risk youth."
 
The Community Partnership Award recognizes MWKF's strategic partnerships with area organizations including the City of Jacksonville, Communities in Schools, The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, USTA Florida, USTA national, John E. Ford K-8 School, Take Stock in Children, and USTA National Junior Tennis & Learning.
 
In addition, individuals who contributed significantly to the partnerships were awarded a Silver Medallion: Sherry Murray, Sheriff John Rutherford, Luther and Blanche Coggin, Leon Baxton, Pat Hogan and Michael DuBow.
 
The Mutual of America Community Partnership Award annually honors the outstanding contributions that nonprofit organizations, in partnership with public, private and other social sector organizations, make to society. An independent committee selects 10 organizations nationwide to be acknowledged. Since its inception in 1996, the Community Partnership Award has recognized 170 partnerships from cities and towns throughout America.
 
The MaliVai Washington Kids Foundation provides hope and opportunities to local Jacksonville youth through its free TnT (Tennis-n-Tutoring) after-school program. Through their partnerships, MWKF provides homework assistance, mentoring, tutoring, life skills and enrichment classes to youth in grades K-12.
