Each November in honor of National Philanthropy Day, The Summit Foundation recognizes outstanding community members through its Annual Philanthropy Awards. Modeled after national and state celebrations in which residents are honored for their contributions to their community, Summit County Philanthropy Awards has been celebrated annually since 1991.

For 2020, we are doing things a little different. The Philanthropy Awards is going virtual this year. Instead of our normal format, we will be honoring our community as a whole for their efforts during this pandemic. Please submit a short story of inspiration that you experienced during the pandemic in the form below. We look forward to honoring the community during this special edition of The Philanthropy Awards.
