Do you know a business or someone going above and beyond to give back to their community? Consider nominating them for the The Association of Fundraising Professionals Vancouver Chapter 2020 Giving Heart Awards at afpvancouver.org.
The 14th annual Giving Hearts Awards honour outstanding individuals, volunteers, leaders, fundraisers, philanthropists and youth of Greater Vancouver’s non-profit and social profit community. Traditionally celebrated with a luncheon event on National Philanthropy day in November this year AFP Vancouver will recognize recipients virtually.
“During this challenging and uncertain time, the spirit of generosity shines especially bright in our community. While we cannot all be together in person this year, we feel that it is important to recognize those offering a helping hand when it is needed most,” Kyle Tiney, CFRE, VP Community Engagement, Association of Fundraising Professionals, Greater Vancouver Chapter.
Organizations and individuals have until June 12 to submit their nominations for the six award categories: Outstanding Philanthropist, Outstanding Legacy Philanthropist, Outstanding Corporation, Outstanding Small Business, Outstanding Youth Philanthropist and Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser.
Past award recipients have included Gordon and Leslie Diamond, the Beedie Family, Brenden Parker, Sandy So, David Podmore, Barbara Grantham, and Barbara Stewart. National Philanthropy Day has also had the pleasure of awarding companies for their work in our community, some recipients have been CIBC, National Tile LTD, IA Financial Group, and others.
