We are glad to bring to you the inaugural Forbes India Philanthropy Awards. These awards aim to recognise, applaud and reward the efforts of the best of this breed, the organisations and individuals who have not just given time, money, skill and expertise, but have created model institutions that will inspire others and show them the way. The ones, in short, who demonstrate that business can be a force for good.
GiveIndia is partnering with Forbes India as the Knowledge Partners for this award. An invitation from the Editor of Forbes India has been attached below. We have helped them draw up a shortlist for seven categories. But for three categories, we decided that we will invite nominations from all of you. These are:
1. The Good Samaritan Award
This award is for an exceptional individual at any level in a company who has successfully led and galvanised support within the organisation to mount programs that help more people within that organisation to support worthy causes and give back to society. This will be based on nominations by his/her company.
2. The Cause Marketing Award
This award is for a company that has successfully marketed products or services in conjunction with a charity and brought significant benefits to both parties.
3. Outstanding Corporate Foundation
This award will honour foundations that have taken up a social issue and have long term vision, strategy, a sustainable model and have created significant impact in their chosen areas.
The last day for filing nominations is September 10, 2012. So do hurry!!!
