Awards to West Virginia individuals and organizations to celebrate, recognize, and advance contributions to the field of philanthropy. Three awards will be given to honor extraordinary commitment and efforts in charitable giving and local grantmaking that has made a positive impact on West Virginia residents.

Staff Leadership Award
The Staff Leadership Award honors an individual exhibiting an extraordinary commitment to philanthropy in the state of West Virginia. This staff member (volunteer or paid) excels in his or her role by demonstrating exceptional commitment and leadership in the field. Creativity is a significant component of the individual’s efforts and the impact of his or her work has been clearly demonstrated. This is not a lifetime achievement award and so nominations should focus on nominees’ work in the past 24 months or less.

Critical Impact Award
Philanthropy West Virginia believes that extraordinary efforts deserve widespread recognition. Therefore, Philanthropy WV is proud to announce the Critical Impact Award. This recognition celebrates local grantmaking that has changed lives and communities for the better. Recipients may include one grant project under $5,000 and one grant project over $5,000. The projects will serve as a model for others in philanthropy and will demonstrate creativity, innovation and sustainability.

Volunteer Leadership Award
The Volunteer Leadership Award honors an individual exhibiting an extraordinary commitment to philanthropy in the state of West Virginia. This individual excels in his or her role as an individual philanthropist through their personal giving, company/corporate philanthropy, engaging others to give, and/or advising/serving as a board member of a foundation/philanthropic organization. Consider how this person served as a catalyst in philanthropy over the last 12-24 months in their community that exhibited creativity, leadership and made a significant impact. This is not a lifetime achievement award and so nominations should focus on nominees’ work in the past 24 months or less.

Nominations

Staff Leadership Award
Nominations will be accepted for staff of grantmaking entities.

Critical Impact Award
Nominations will be accepted for programs that demonstrate bold vision, strategic initiative by foundations, or by corporate or government grantmaking organizations. They must have evidence of enduring positive impact and they must demonstrate philanthropic leadership. Special attention will be given to programs that show an unusual level of creativity, innovation and sustainability.

Volunteer Leadership Award
Nominations will be accepted for individuals who are volunteers of grantmaking entities, individual philanthropists (in small and big ways), engage others in giving, and/or leaders in corporate philanthropy.

An independent volunteer peer review panel will review all nominations and select the award recipients. The nominators will be notified of the status of their nomination by September 1, 2017.
