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?
