Nominations for the Philanthropy Awards are now open!
The Philanthropy Awards shine a light on the best of our community. Each fall we look to the community to nominate those that have given of their time, talent and treasure to make our community a better place. Whether this is a young person volunteering, someone who has served the community for decades, a business that is dedicated to making Northeast Nebraska better, or a fundraiser who goes non-stop to make great things happen, we invite you to nominate them for a Philanthropy Award.
This year, we have combined all the nomination categories into a single application, so whether you want to nominate a business, young person, volunteer, fundraiser, or philanthropist, there is just a single form.
