Every November, Legacy Fund honors the good work of people and not-for-profit organizations in Hamilton County. But every year is different, and this year is no exception. In fact, here’s five reasons to secure your ticket today.
Top 5 Reasons Not to Miss Celebration of Philanthropy
1. It’s a not-for-profit-palooza
How often are 44 not-for-profit organizations serving Hamilton County in one room? At Celebration of Philanthropy, you’ll have the chance to learn more about 44 local organizations focused on mental health, mentorship, counseling, music, senior care, history, parks and more.
2. Watch three $5,000 grants get awarded
This year, we’ll debut the first Legacy Fund Community Pillar Awards. Individuals or corporations were nominated and chosen by a committee earlier this year. We’re pleased to announce the winners, but you’ll have to wait until Celebration of Philanthropy to find out how each award recipient will grant the $5,000 they’ve been provided from Legacy Fund. Each recipient will surprise a not-for-profit of their choice with the $5,000 grant.
