With tax filing day here – for both individuals today and then in May for many foundations – my thoughts are turning to discerning the latest charitable giving trends here in Ohio.
As I end my tenure leading Philanthropy Ohio at the end of February, I‘ve reflected on the experience and gathered some thoughts and reflections from my time here. The past six years have been a tremendous learning opportunity for me, due in large part to our members.
With National Philanthropy day coming up next week, I’m excited to recognize a number of individuals and organizations receiving awards – including our own annual awards that we presented recently – for the contributions they make every day to improve communities and lives in Ohio.
It’s the time of the year that we celebrate the best of the best in philanthropy. The four annual philanthropy awards applaud those who are moving the field forward and getting work done in innovative and impactful ways to improve our communities across Ohio. The awards recognize an emerging leader; an innovator; a diversity, equity, and inclusion champion and a lifetime achiever in philanthropy. Who will you nominate?
Earlier this month, four individuals received awards for outstanding achievements in philanthropy. This year is the 13th consecutive year our board of trustees has awarded the Ohio Philanthropy Award, which went to Hank Doll.
