Central Carolina Community Foundation
Central Carolina Community Foundation hosts the annual Best of Philanthropy Awards, in conjunction with Columbia Metropolitan Magazine, to honor ordinary people in our community who are making significant contributions through their life’s work. We created the awards to celebrate these people who make giving back a priority for themselves, their family or their business.
We encourage members of our community to nominate co-workers, friends and associates. The spirit of these awards is to honor the people in our community whose actions often go unnoticed except by those who are directly affected by their generosity. Involvement and time are two of the greatest gifts we can offer our community and we want to recognize the people and businesses in our community who, through these gifts, are making a difference.
There are four categories in which to nominate: Individual/Family, Group, Local Business and Student/Student Group. A panel of judges selects the recipients based on the community needs addressed by the nominee’s efforts; accomplishments generated by the nominee; and what sets them apart from other individuals. Best of Philanthropy winners are honored with a $1,000 donation made in their name to the nonprofit organization of their choice in the Foundation’s 11-county service area in the Midlands. All winners are also recognized at the Foundation’s annual celebration in the fall and featured in the November issue of Columbia Metropolitan magazine.
Nominations for the 5th Annual Best of Philanthropy Awards are due June 30, 2014 and are accepted by completing this online form. For questions, contact the Community Foundation at 803.254.5601.
