The Council on Foundations Awards Program was established to recognize excellence in philanthropy and honor exemplary leaders for their dedication to exploring creative ways to advance the common good.

This year’s ceremony, held at the National Museum of Women in the Arts on November 28, 2018, recognized four distinct awards that recognize excellence in philanthropy: the Distinguished Service Award, the Robert W. Scrivner Award for Creative Grantmaking, the Wilmer Shields Rich Award for Excellence in Communications and the Chapman Prize, a new addition to the awards portfolio which carries a $100,000 prize. The ceremony included a speech by Stephen Heintz, the 2018 Distinguished Service Award winner, on the state of philanthropy, as well as performances by local artists.

A brief Council Member Meeting preceded the ceremony from 3:00-3:45 pm ET, where attendees heard the state of the Council and elected new members of the Board of Directors. 

The Awards Ceremony was from 4:00 pm-5:00 pm, and was followed by a networking reception from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm.
