In 2020, the only traditional National Philanthropy Day awards that we’ll be selecting are for the Outstanding Youth and Outstanding Youth Group categories.
Our hearty thanks to the Daniels Fund for their ongoing support of these awards. Each winner will receive a $3,000 cash award.
Nominations were due mid June and are now closed.
Outstanding Youth: Presented to an individual youth volunteer (18 and under at the time of nomination) who has demonstrated outstanding commitment to the promotion of philanthropy and volunteerism through his/her work in the community. This commitment and impact is demonstrated specifically through activities by the individual in Colorado. The individual acts as a role model for other youth in the community and generates interest in volunteerism. The winner will receive a $3,000 award for education expenses.
Outstanding Youth Group: Presented to a youth group (majority of members 18 and under at the time of nomination) that has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the promotion of philanthropy and volunteerism through their work in the community. This commitment and impact is demonstrated specifically through activities in Colorado. The group acts as a role model for others in the community and generates interest in volunteerism. Preference given to youth directed groups (for example, student councils). The group will receive a $3,000 award to assist in the continuation of its community work.
