FirstBank_logo.jpgEach 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. 

The Summit Foundation accepts nominations for and from Summit County individuals, organizations and businesses. A countywide committee, with representation from the community, business, nonprofit, government and educational sectors, review the nominations and recommend each year's recipients. This is the most heartwarming event of the year as we honor those who make our community better every day. 

Nominations for 2019 are now open!
