Growing Philanthropy Award
Hartsook Institutes is founded on the principle of increasing philanthropy by elevating the fundraising field. We know we can’t do it alone. There are those in the nonprofit sector who are already doing an exemplary job embodying the spirit of philanthropy, persevering against all odds, and linking the quality, knowledgeable fundraiser to the philanthropist.
In this spirit, Hartsook Institutes recognizes a distinguished group of individuals and organizations whose efforts increase philanthropy through research, innovation and challenging the status quo.
