In these extraordinary times, it is more important than ever to celebrate people who give and serve every day in Spokane. This year, due to COVID-19 safety concerns, the planning for the actual event is still in process. But it is important that the philanthropic heroes in our community be honored.
While many are putting hours above and beyond into honorable efforts, the intent of the Spokane Philanthropy Awards is to highlight and celebrate those who are making significant impact in addition to their public/private sector employment and/or retired status.
Nominees' impact should be primarily within Spokane County (United Way of Spokane County's service area).
Company Based Awards
To qualify for this award, the philanthropic entity should demonstrate outstanding community commitment through financial support, executive/employee involvement, and the encouragement/motivation of others to take leadership roles toward philanthropy and community involvement. Entities need not be Spokane County-based, but should have local operations.
Individual Based Awards
To qualify for this award, the philanthropic individual, couple or family should demonstrate outstanding community commitment through advocacy, leadership role(s), mobilizing efforts toward a cause, volunteerism, and supporting philanthropic contributions in Spokane county.
