Throughout the country and beyond, Philanos affiliates are practicing high impact transformational grantmaking. Philanos wants to celebrate those efforts. Highlighting our affiliates’ grantmaking is a vital way for us to demonstrate the change that is a result of investments in our community nonprofits.
You are invited to nominate a grant that has transformed your members, your affiliate, a grantee organization, and/or your community. Up to three affiliates will be recognized with a Spotlight Award during a virtual presentation in September, 2021. The awards ceremony will include a description of the Philanos affiliate, the grant and the grantee organization. Philanos will make a monetary award of $500+ to the affiliate, which may be passed through to the grantee. Selected affiliates will be recognized in all Philanos media platforms.
To be considered:
Please describe the grant, including the way in which you believe it was transformational to the grantee organization, your community, and/or your affiliate in 750 words or less. If you have visuals (videos, photos, etc.) to demonstrate, please include with the application. Please submit your application and all supporting materials here.
The selection committee is especially interested in one of two areas:
The deadline for submission is June 15, 2021 by midnight PST. Your submission will be acknowledged by return email. You will be contacted by August 15, 2021 if your affiliate is selected for a Spotlight Award.
A panel of five evaluators, two Philanos Board members and three non-board affiliate members, will review all submissions and choose up to three affiliates that will be spotlighted during our virtual celebration.
