The event is scheduled for Nov. 9 at the Morgan Hill Community & Cultural Center.
Co-hosting with PG&E, the MHCF event helps local nonprofits “showcase the dedicated work of Morgan Hill’s philanthropists and volunteers selected by each participating nonprofit,” according to the July 9 announcement.
To complete an Honoree Information Form on behalf of a local nonprofit, visit morganhillcf.org for an online form and instructions. Honoree information forms are due Sept. 7. All honorees are celebrated equally; it is not a competition with one final winner.
Philanthropy Night honorees come from any nonprofit in Morgan Hill that wishes to honor a person, company or group that has made a significant contribution to the nonprofit in the current calendar year. It could be that a person has volunteered for many hours or provided financial support.
The nonprofits determine the criteria appropriate for their group, thereby making it a fair consideration no matter how small or large the nonprofit is.
Additionally, MHCF has a board of director position available. Anyone interested, should contact the Foundation at (408) 722-7612.
The MHCF is a tax-exempt, public charity focused on improving the quality of life in the greater Morgan Hill region. The group has six funding areas: Arts & Culture, Recreation, Education & Lifelong Learning, Health & Human Services, Science & Technology, and Environment & Agriculture. It has an annual discretionary grants process that awards grants to local nonprofit organizations and programs, offers high school scholarships to local graduating students and works with donors on an individual basis to assist in philanthropic choices and community investment strategies.
