Distinguished Honoree Program

The 2021 Distinguished Honoree Program 

The chapter is excited to announce the return of its Distinguished Honoree Program.  This program provides WNY nonprofit organizations with the opportunity to recognize an outstanding founder, donor or volunteer at our annual National Philanthropy Day Virtual Event on Thursday, November 18, 2021. The program offers a unique chance to bestow prestigious recognition on those special supporters of your work.

We hope you will join us for this heartfelt virtual celebration and take the time to say thank you to those who have gone above and beyond for your organization during this time by recognizing them as a Distinguished Honoree.  The honoree may be an individual, couple, or an organization, and may be represented by an individual or group.
