Philanthropists of the Year honors those individuals who lead the way, in Tampa Bay, through philanthropic devotion. These leaders continually set the bar for excellence in community leadership and represent the change-makers we all aspire to be.
Nominees will be sent a nomination packet to fill out and return. The packets will be assessed during a judging session with an outside panel. Packets are required for consideration in the awards program. Finalists will be revealed following the judging session. TBBW staff has no say in who is named a finalist and who is named a winner in their respective category.
Deadline: Nominations Have Closed
After deliberating at the Tampa Bay Business and Wealth office for 4 hours, three judges from the Tampa Bay area have selected the finalists for Tampa Bay Business and Wealth’s Philanthropists of the Year Awards.
The Philanthropists of the Year Awards honors those individuals who lead the way, in Tampa Bay, through philanthropic devotion. These leaders continually set the bar for excellence in community leadership and represent the change-makers we all aspire to be.
