We’ve just opened nominations for four awards recognizing Ohio philanthropists, either individuals or organizations doing outstanding work in their communities. You have until August 1 to submit nomination forms, which are available for download at philanthropyohio.org/awards. The Board of Trustees (whose members aren’t eligible for any of the awards) will review the nominations and make their selections in time for presentation on September 21 during the Learning Institute we’re holding in Columbus.



The awards are:

The Michael G. Shinn Award for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Philanthropy

This is the second year for the Shinn Award, which recognizes an individual who has demonstrated a significant commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in his/her philanthropic practice in Ohio. Michael G. Shinn was the founder of the Shinn Family Foundation and served as secretary of Philanthropy Ohio’s Board of Trustees until his death in March 2015. He chaired the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, taking on primary responsibility for guiding Philanthropy Ohio’s efforts in that arena.

Ohio Philanthropy Award

This is our life-time achievement award, which we’ve given since 2004. It honors an organization or individual who has made outstanding contributions to philanthropy by demonstrating long-standing leadership in advancing philanthropy, creativity in responding to societal problems or a significant positive impact on philanthropy.

Philanthropy Innovation Award

We created this award a few years ago to recognize someone who has moved Ohio philanthropy forward through an innovation or implemented an idea that led to positive change in how the philanthropic sector operates, thinks or impacts communities.

The Emerging Philanthropist Award

The award celebrates someone who has engaged in philanthropic work for the first time during the last few years, either in a career path or as a private individual, and shows amazing potential for future leadership.

Find out more about each award’s criteria, see lists of previous winners and download forms online. If you have questions, give me a call (614.224.1344) or email. (cherrold@philanthropyohio.org).
