Submit Your Distinguished Volunteer Today! Deadline Extended!
Is there a volunteer at your organization that directly contributes to your success? One who inspires you with their passion and motivation for your cause?
Do you have a board member that always goes the extra mile - closing the gap on donations or always willing to do what they can to help out?
Is there a volunteer that your organization couldn't operate without?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have a DISTINGUISHED VOLUNTEER!
Please celebrate them, their commitment to your organization and philanthropy as a whole at the 26th annual National Philanthropy Day dinner on November 9th at The Henry in Dearborn. Submissions are open now for your Distinguished Volunteers! Simply fill out the form and tell us a bit about your volunteer. Their photo and bio will be included in the program book that will be available at the National Philanthropy Day dinner. We only ask that you host your volunteer at the event.
