Register now for PhilanthroPLAY- our 2011 Annual Meeting taking place at The Magic House on January 30, 2012.
As always, at our Annual Meeting we will award three grantmakers for our Excellence in Grantmaking Awards. See below for information on the award categories and the winners. We will be highlighting the winner grantmakers and the nonprofits who nominated them on our blog in the coming weeks. Thank you to all of the organizations that took the time to nominate a grantmaker for an award.
Giving is On Going
Creating lasting change is the goal of every grantmaker. 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 St. Louis Zoo, Webster University, and the Wyman Center all nominated The Saigh Foundation
Giving is On Time
This category recognizes a grantmaker who either abandoned traditional funding requirements to meet the immediate and/or emergency needs of nonprofits and clients in the community OR worked closely with a nonprofit to help them realign their programs and strategies to better meet the needs of their clients and the community during these difficult economic times.
- The Arts and Education Council nominated Maritz
Giving is Far Reaching
In-kind support and volunteerism are critical to helping nonprofits stretch a dollar and strengthen their organization. Being responsive to community needs often means leveraging resources beyond financial grants.
- Rebuilding Together- St. Louis and The Home Repair Network nominated Daughters of Charity Foundation of St. Louis
