Presenting Sponsor

This is a year when community generosity has shone more than ever.  While we aren’t able to host our annual luncheon event to recognize the 2020 Giving Hearts Awards nominees, we virtually shine a light on the incredible generosity and contributions of the nominated individuals, companies and organizations.

Whether by committing countless hours of fundraising efforts, donating a lifetime of savings or making pivotal gifts, each of our 2020 Giving Hearts Awards nominees embody the spirit of philanthropy. As we approach National Philanthropy Day on November 15th, a day to recognize the incredible generosity and contributions of individuals, companies and organizations worldwide, we encourage you to share your story of philanthropy or how philanthropy has benefited you by using #givingisreceiving on all social platforms.

Each week up until November 15, we will be sharing new profiles on our 31 nominees.  Check back regularly to see them!  We are extremely grateful for the support of our sponsors who have made this possible.
