Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County plans for virtual Celebration of Philanthropy

The Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County’s (CFAAC) Celebration of Philanthropy is going to be a little different this year. In addition to its tradition of honoring five community philanthropists and volunteers, CFAAC has added 15 new categories, creating 20 awards to commemorate the 20th year for CFAAC’s Celebration of Philanthropy. Due to COVID-19-related social distancing and gathering restrictions, the November 5, 2020 award ceremony will be held virtually.

“It is our goal to make the day just as exciting for the awardees and the communities they serve,” said Mary Spencer, President & CEO of CFAAC. “Stay tuned for updates as we get closer to the date.”

The nomination deadline has been extended to Thursday, August 20, 2020. Celebration of Philanthropy awards recognize individuals, families, businesses, foundations, volunteer groups, nonprofit staff, and elected officials who demonstrate exceptional generosity by donating their time, talent, or financial resources to make a positive impact on philanthropy in Anne Arundel County.

The nomination and selection process will also look different. Nomination forms have been updated and simplified, allowing for an increased number of supporting documents as well as input from the nominees, their families, friends, and colleagues. The selection committee for the new awards will include nonprofit and community leaders, while the five original awards will be selected by previous years’ honorees.

“We are hoping that nonprofit organizations, community members, community advocates, and members of the faith communities nominate any group, business, family or individual who motivates others and steps up to take care of our community. It can be an outstanding group of volunteers, a public/private collaboration, a community leader, a young person, or a single staff member who goes above and beyond for a nonprofit,” added Spencer.

Questions about the nominations can be directed to Amy Francis at 410.280.1102. Email completed nomination forms, written statements, and supporting documents to [email protected].

Awardees in the following five categories will be selected by a committee made up of past Celebration of Philanthropy Award recipients.

  • Philanthropist of the Year Award– Presented to an individual or family with a proven record of exceptional generosity who, through direct financial support, has demonstrated outstanding civic and philanthropic responsibility, and whose generosity encourages others to become philanthropic leaders, particularly in Anne Arundel County.
