NPD Award Nomination  Volunteer Recognition Award

Recognizing individuals and organizations for their spirit of selfless generosity inspires the entire community to celebrate the spirit of philanthropy, spurring others on to “Change the World with a Giving Heart.”

Nominations will be accepted from any individual, business, or nonprofit for the following categories:

  • Outstanding Corporate Philanthropist
  • Outstanding Philanthropist
  • Outstanding Foundation
  • Outstanding Fundraising Professional
  • Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser
  • Outstanding Media Outlet or Best Nonprofit Media Coverage
  • Outstanding Youth(s) in Philanthropy (an individual, pair, or small group of young people Ages 5-17)
  • Outstanding Youth(s) in Philanthropy (an individual, pair, or small group of young people Ages 18-23)

No individual, business, or foundation will be considered for an award in the same category they have previously won within a period of 10 years of their award.

Wish you could do more to thank a volunteer for their tireless donation of time and talent?  Whether this effort is from a single person, a couple, or co-chairs of an event, you can thank them and make them feel special by nominating them for the Volunteer Recognition portion of the NPD program. Select a volunteer who has donated a significant amount of their time and/or has contributed financially to your organization.  

Each volunteer will be introduced at the NPD luncheon, listed with the designating agency in the program, and receive a certificate of appreciation. We do ask that your organization register and cover the cost of lunch for your volunteer. 

Only one volunteer per organization will be recognized (a couple or a pair of co-chairs of a campaign/event are considered to be one volunteer).


Deadline for submissions will be 5:00pm on Friday, June 14, 2024.

Nominations will only be accepted via this electronic form and must be completed in one session.
