Welcome to the 2021 Philanthropy Day Awards Nomination Form!

What is Philanthropy Day?

Philanthropy Day is a program of the Idaho Nonprofit Center that was revitalized in 2017 in partnership with the Idaho Community Foundation, Association of Fundraising Professionals, and the Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation to recognize and celebrate the philanthropic contributions of individuals and organizations across Idaho. In 2020, we formed a new partnership with Serve Idaho and the Brightest Star Awards. We are joining efforts to celebrate Idaho’s philanthropic spirit with a new award category directly highlighting the volunteerism of adult Idahoans.
