The Fund for Women (FFW) at the Delaware Community Foundation (DCF) has selected Lynn Adams Kokjohn as recipient of the 2015 Driving Force Award for her work to advance the organization.

Kokjohn will accept the award at the FFW grants ceremony on May 14 at the Duncan Center in Dover.

Kokjohn, a Rehoboth Beach resident, led a team that recruited more than 200 new FFW Founders (members) and helped raise thousands of dollars to support grants assisting women and girls in Delaware. She has served as chair of the Sussex County Development Committee on the FFW Board of Trustees for six years.

In April, Kokjohn coordinated the FFW’s fifth annual “Fun, Fashion & Philanthropy” fashion show, which resulted in 24 new Founders.

A retired DuPont manager and former co-owner of Fauxbulous FX Inc., Kokjohn now focuses on philanthropy. She is the chair of the Sussex County Advisory Committee for the DCF and serves on the DCF’s Board of Directors. She also is a board member of the Delaware Family Law Commission, the Harry K Foundation, and the Delaware Commission on Early Education and the Economy.

“With Lynn’s leadership, the Founder growth in Sussex County has been phenomenal in the past six years, and Lynn has been instrumental in furthering the Fund for Women’s strategic plans for our statewide organization,” FFW Chair Michele Whetzel said. “She is one of our greatest cheerleaders, and we all admire her commitment to making Delaware a better place for women and girls.”
