The Gateway Center for Giving celebrates the work of our St. Louis area grantmakers through our Excellence in Grantmaking Awards by honoring donors who fund programs, efforts, or initiatives that have made a significant impact in the region. Over the the next few weeks we will share with the community both the winning nominations as well as some of the other great nominations that will be considered for an award in 2012. Awards will be handed out at our 2011 Annual Meeting PhilanthroPLAY which will take place at The Magic House on January 30, 2012. Click here to register.
The Giving is ON GOING award recognizes a grantmaker who created a lasting change. There is no better way to leave a legacy than by changing the future. This category includes either giving that spans multiple years in order to demonstrate systems change OR a grant that allowed a nonprofit to institutionalize a program that is now self supporting and providing a revenue stream for the organization.
The winner of the 2011 Giving is ON GOING award goes to The Saigh Foundation from three different nonprofit organizations. Yes, The Saigh Foundation was nominated by a record three organizations this year including the Saint Louis Zoo, Webster University, and Wyman Center. Read the rest of this entry »
