As we approach National Philanthropy Day, think back about your year and how far you, your nonprofit and your community have come. It’s likely that these successes didn’t come easy…or alone. Think about the volunteer fundraiser that got you through an event. Or a corporation or foundation that gave you that extra push. What about the youth in your community that reminded you what philanthropy was all about?
They sound like some really incredible people and organizations—we want to know more! SHOW us your passion and thanks for those outstanding corporations, foundations, philanthropists, volunteers and youths in philanthropy. Find past award winners here.
All nominations must be in by September 26th, 2014. Voting for the awards will then commence , and honorees will be selected by the AFP Awards Committee. From there, the nominators (i.e. you) will be contacted for further information and additional steps. The final selected honorees will be recognized during AFP’s National Philanthropy Day® celebration in November 2014.
Nominations are being accepted in recognition of outstanding philanthropic and volunteer contributions in six categories. The categories are:
- Outstanding Business or Foundation in Philanthropy
- Outstanding Small Business in Philanthropy
- Outstanding Volunteer in Philanthropy
- Outstanding Individual or Family Philanthropist
- Outstanding Youth or Youth Group in Philanthropy
- Outstanding Fundraising Professional in Philanthropy
- The Eugene L. Wilson Award
This is your opportunity to recognize and thank those who have demonstrated outstanding support and community involvement.
The goal of the AFP Scholarship Program is to create and connect a thriving community of leaders who fundraise. Each year we award scholarships for membership, with a preference for diversity in any form and/or applicants who represent under-represented populations. We seek scholar candidates at every phase of their fundraising career who desire the opportunity to engage in the sector and to work with peers to foster their own and others' leadership ability.
