Philanthropy Award Ideas and Wording

Philanthropy Award Ideas and Wording

For many Organizations, the Recognition of an Individual or Company that has Made Significant Contributions to Charitable Organizations in the Community have Become Important Elements in their Awards Programs.

Sometimes these awards are named after a founding member of the organization, significant member or employee from the firm's past, or a large contributor.

Some Philanthropy Awards are presented as thank you for a significant donation for a new facility, expansion, research grant or the addition of new and much needed equipment.

Philanthropy awards are given to celebrate the leadership of individuals and organizations who advance innovative solutions and demonstrate meaningful progress in a community, association, or other nonprofit organization. Philanthropy awards recognize individuals and leaders who give, advocate and volunteer for positive change. Many times, these awards will honor a corporation or a corporate foundation that demonstrates outstanding commitment through financial support, or through encouragement and motivation of others, to take leadership roles toward philanthropy and community involvement.

Often these awards are presented at an annual benefit or gathering for the organization. In addition to an individual being presented with an award, an additional plaque or duplicate award is often engraved to be displayed at the organization’s main office, either in the lobby or the main conference room. Here are some ideas and options for wording your Philanthropy Award.
