Philanthropy Ohio Opens Nominations for 3 Awards
We’re very excited to announce the creation of two NEW awards that we’ll present this year, in addition to our traditional Ohio Philanthropy Award, which we’ve given out for several years. Nominations for all awards are due no later than September 13, giving our board time to review the submissions and make decisions. We’ll present the awards during lunch on November 14, at our annual conference in Columbus.
The is our “life-time achievement” award, which we first presented in 2004. Nominees for this award should have made outstanding contributions to philanthropy and can be either an individual, an organization or group of individuals or organizations demonstrating:
• Long-standing leadership in advancing philanthropy;
• Creativity in responding to societal problems; and/or
• Significant positive impact on philanthropy.
Our NEW Emerging Ohio Philanthropist Award will recognize someone who – regardless of age – has engaged in philanthropy for the first time during the last few years, either in a career path or as a private individual, and shows amazing potential by demonstrating:
• Exemplary leadership in advancing philanthropy;
• Engagement beyond a single community;
• Creativity in a philanthropic endeavor or project; and/or
• Significant accomplishment in a short period of time.
Our other NEW award is the Ohio Philanthropy Innovation Award. It will celebrate a catalyst who has moved Ohio philanthropy forward through an innovation in the last few years, someone whose idea led to positive change in how the philanthropic sector operates, thinks or impacts communities.
You can find out more about the awards, download the nomination forms and learn how to submit nominees online.
