About the awards

The Benton Community Foundation’s Philanthropic Achievement Awards brings together nonprofit leaders, business leaders, and community members to recognize outstanding achievements in philanthropy in Benton County.

The event showcases the hard work of our talented, generous community, and celebrates the people and organizations that volunteer, donate, and inspire others to create a bright future for families and children.

National Philanthropy Day

November 15th was first recognized as National Philanthropy Day by President Ronald Reagan in 1986. Since then, charitable organizations across the United States and throughout the world have designated November 15th as a day to honor their neighbors’ investment of time, talent, and financial resources.

The Benton Community Foundation is excited to bring this celebration to Benton County. We know donors and volunteers don’t give back in order to be recognized, but we think it’s important to highlight the outstanding contributions being made every day to our communities. We are grateful for our generous neighbors, and we look forward to honoring what you do.
