Normadene Carpenter Award 2022

Every year Arts and Culture El Dorado presents the Normadene Carpenter Award, which recognizes extraordinary commitment to culture and creativity in our county. This year we are honoring Bill Roby and his commitment to the El Dorado County community.

As the Executive Director of El Dorado Community Foundation, Bill has worked tirelessly for over 15 years to bring support to individuals and organizations when they need it most, and last year, during the Caldor Fire, he went beyond the call of duty. He immediately gathered his staff and organized aid to anyone affected by this disaster, ensuring that the true meaning of “community” in the Foundation’s name rang true. This was in addition to his usual duties of assisting generous patrons make decisions about directing their support, building the Foundation’s grant programs, and developing targeted initiatives in South Lake Tahoe and on the Western Slope.
