The AIMBE Philanthropy Award was created in 2021 to recognize a Fellow who has made outstanding contributions to advancing, contributing, and/or volunteering to philanthropic or non-profit organizations working to improve the lives, communities or opportunities of others. The AIMBE Philanthropy Award is presented at the Annual Event.
Both nominators and nominees must be AIMBE Fellows and in good standing with the organization. Nominators shall provide the name, contact details, maximum 30-word citation, and 500-word description of the candidate’s contributions meriting the award, as well as a letter of support. Citations, as well as the 500-word statement, must specially address accomplishments pertinent ONLY to the impact of the award for which the candidate is nominated. Nominations should provide specific metrics to support the candidate’s impact (personal anecdotes will not be considered). The letter of support must be from an individual with direct knowledge of the impact for which the candidate is nominated. Nominators should also submit a CV (5 pages max) that highlights the nominee’s accomplishments that are relevant to the award category.
Individual recipients receiving an award will be recognized at the Awards Banquet during AIMBE’s Annual Meeting and must be present to accept their award.
