a celebration of the impact of giving
sponsored by the hampton roads chapter of the association of fundraising professionals
Each year AFP-HR issues a call for nominations to honor the generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations whose gifts of commitment, dedication and leadership have made Hampton Roads a better place.
All awards recipients are chosen by the AFP-HR Awards Committee. The committee reviews each application received by the stated deadline that satisfies all criteria.
If, in the judgment of the committee, no application for a particular award meets the stated criteria, no award will be given for that year. The committee works to establish consistent criteria for each award.
The awards were presented Nov. 16 on National Philanthropy Day at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott. Keynote speaker was Angelica Light, president and CEO of the Hampton Roads Community Foundation.
