The William D. Littleford Awards for Corporate Community Service were named after and established by the chairman emeritus of BPI Communications, Inc. The award recognizes companies, organizations or individuals that are involved in active community service programs aimed at alleviating critical social problems. Littleford established this award for a number of purposes: to raise the visibility of the business media editorial product; to encourage increased coverage and recognition of community service success stories; and to motivate other organizations to apply such solutions in their own communities.
