AFP IHQ encourages Central Florida members to nominate a philanthropist for a NEW awards program

email_header_Awards_800x175AFP’s new awards program is now open for nominations, and AFP International is  encouraging our Central Florida AFP membership (yes, that’s you) to submit yours today. It’s an all-new process, and it’s very easy. Here are the key things you need to know:

  • ANY member of AFP can submit a nomination.
  • Any person or organization can be nominated, assuming they fit the initial criteria. Nominees don’t have to be chapter honorees.
  • Nominations are due Jan. 31.
  • Honorees will be recognized at AFP’s National Philanthropy Day® event in November 2014.
  • The initial nomination “form” is a short video.

The biggest change is the video. Instead of a long written form, nominators must submit a short video, no longer than three minutes, detailing in their own words why the nominee is worthy of being selected.

AFP International wants to hear—simply and directly—how your nominee is changing the community and the world—their stories of impact and making a difference.

To upload your video—and see examples of the types of videos AFP International is looking for—click here for the AFP awards page:

You have until Jan. 31 to upload your video, and provide a little basic information about you and your nominee.

Then what happens?

After Jan. 31, chapters vote for their favorites in each category. International will tally the chapter voting, and top nominees will then be vetted by AFP IHQ’s Awards Committee.

Nominators will be asked for more detailed information about each nominee, and the committee will select the top three nominees in each category.

Those nominees will then be reviewed by a blue star panel of judges, and final honorees will be honored at AFP’s National Philanthropy Day celebration in November 2014.
