Spotlight Awards 2022

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 on October 11, 2022. 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 on all Philanos media platforms.  

Process for Application:

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. 

The selection committee is additionally interested in but not limited to these areas:

  • Equity and inclusion as a lens in grantmaking and/or how one of your grants has increased equity and inclusion in your organization or community. 
  • Trust Based Philanthropy initiatives in grantmaking and/or your relationship with a grantee
  • COVID response related to grantmaking whether collaborative, single grants, additional monies or other.

Questions should be sent to: info@philanos.org  

The deadline for submission is August 15, 2022 by midnight PST.  Use our online form to submit your nomination.  If your affiliate is selected for a Spotlight Award, you will be contacted in September so we can prepare for your participation in our virtual award celebration on October 11, 2022.  Mark your calendar now.  Similar to last year's event, the awardees will be announced live and you will be given a few minutes to highlight your grantee.  We will conduct a practice session as we'd like you to be on camera this year!
