The Association of Fundraising Professionals Northeast Ohio Chapter will celebrate National Philanthropy Day (NPD) on November 1, 2019.

The NPD Nominations Committee is seeking nominations for awards in the following categories to be presented at this year’s luncheon celebration:

  • Small Business Leadership Award: This award is presented to a business with 100 employees or fewer that has demonstrated outstanding commitment to the community through financial support and volunteerism. The business encourages and motivates others to take philanthropic leadership roles in the community.
  • Corporate Leadership Award: This award is presented to a business or corporation of any size that demonstrates outstanding philanthropic commitment through financial support and community involvement. The corporation contributes direct financial support for projects, programs, and/or capital improvements to multiple northeast Ohio nonprofit organizations in addition to participating in volunteer community activities.
  • Foundation Leadership Award: This award is presented to a philanthropic foundation that contributes financial support to multiple northeast Ohio nonprofit organizations. The foundation’s impact includes support for innovative approaches to solving problems in the community.
  • Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser Award: This award honors an individual or family who demonstrates outstanding skills coordinating and motivating groups of volunteers for nonprofit fundraising initiatives. The recipient(s) have exceptional leadership skills coordinating groups of volunteers for major fundraising projects, ideally for more than one nonprofit organization.  
  • Outstanding Philanthropist Award: This award honors an individual or family with exceptional generosity who, through direct financial support, demonstrates outstanding civic and charitable responsibility and whose generosity encourages others to take philanthropic leadership roles in the community. In addition, the individual or family encourages and motivates others to take leadership roles in philanthropy (i.e. challenge gifts, matching gifts, volunteering, etc.).
  • Youth in Philanthropy Award: This award recognizes service by a child or group of children in grades K-12 who demonstrate commitment to the community through direct financial support, volunteering, and/or leadership in philanthropy. The child or group of children devotes time, talent, and/or treasure to creatively support a nonprofit and is responsible for the creation, orchestration, and results of this project. Special consideration will be given to the child or group whose work is ongoing.
  • Special Recognition Award: This award is presented to an individual, family, or group whose philanthropic contributions are unique and impactful and whose work supporting a nonprofit organization or cause is innovative.
  • Lifetime Achievement Award: This award recognizes an individual who serves as a role model for philanthropy through his or her history of sustained volunteerism and financial giving. He or she is also active in passing along the value of philanthropy to future generations. To be awarded this distinction, the individual must have been honored in another category in previous years.
  • Outstanding Professional Fundraiser Award: This award recognizes an individual who works directly for a nonprofit organization, serving as a role model for other fundraising professionals and demonstrating the highest of ethical standards. This person's career should highlight significant increases in return on fundraising investment, successful management of key programs, the creation of new organizational cultures, and/or the introduction of innovative and creative ideas. The nominee must have a minimum of ten years' experience and be a member of the AFPNEO chapter. Consultants or other individuals not working directly for a charity are INELIGIBLE for this award. Two letters of support of this nomination should be emailed to info@afpneo.org.

This is a wonderful way to honor an individual or an organization who has made a significant contribution to your organization and the community. Let NPD help you say “thank you!”

Apart from those nominated for the Lifetime Achievement Award, past awardees may not be nominated multiple times. Please click here to see if your awardee has already been honored before you submit your nomination.

In addition, if your nominee is selected, we will ask for your assistance in preparing the presentation and program materials.
