Nominations for The 2023 Willoughby Award

The Willoughby Award honors a visionary philanthropic leader who is using their collective giving experience in new and innovative ways to support their local communities, particularly for underserved or marginalized populations.

All Philanos Affiliates are invited to nominate a member of their circle. The award will be announced and presented at the Philanos National Conference - PowerUP! Baltimore - November 5-7, 2023.

Who should be nominated?

    • Do you have a member who has been inspired by collective giving to go beyond the philanthropic efforts of your circle’s grantmaking?
    • Do you have a member who is a role model and mentor for others because of their philanthropic giving?
    • Do you have a member who has identified needs in their local community that need to be served in different ways?
    • Do you have a member who is inspiring more women to elevate, engage and amplify their philanthropic voices?

Who is eligible?

    • A member or staff member of a Philanos Affiliate who is in good standing.
    • An individual member of a Philanos Affiliate.
    • Anyone who was nominated in 2022 may be renominated.
    • Current Philanos board members are not eligible.
Who may submit a nomination?
    • A Philanos Affiliate Executive Director, Board Chair or President.
    • A member who is self-nominating, identifies an endorser in their submission.

In honor of Colleen Willoughby, this award will be given to one woman in the Philanos Affiliate network who has taken her philanthropic experience beyond her circle affiliation. This is a member committed to leading women and challenging the status quo to meet the needs of nonprofits in their communities.

In the same way that Colleen Willoughby brought women into male-dominated philanthropy, Philanos is looking to recognize a woman who has done the same nearly three decades later: listening to and representing historically underrepresented populations.
