Philanos Awards 

The Willoughby Award

Philanos will present this award at our future conferences to a woman in the Network whose experience and affiliation with her collective giving organization has empowered her to become a visionary leader among women in philanthropy. The award will focus on the leadership aspect of collective giving and honors Colleen Willoughby's legacy as a visionary leader in philanthropy including the founder of Washington Women's Foundation (WaWF) and Philanos. 

Award winner will be recognized for taking philanthropy and leadership in new directions, challenging the status quo –– as Colleen did in 1995 –– to inspire more women to find and amplify their voices today, tomorrow and for the foreseeable future. Philanos' vision is that throughout the next 25 years, Colleen's visionary leadership continues to inspire new, groundbreaking leaders in philanthropy.
