The International Association of Advisors in Philanthropy (AiP) recognizes annually an individual with a distinguished career in service to the philanthropic community. Awardees are chosen for their efforts to uphold the standards of excellence in ethics, service and charitable planning encouraged by the Association.
Named after the
late Scott Fithian, one of the founding members and leaders of this
organization whose passion for Philanthropic Advising continues to be highly
recognized., the Fithian Leadership Award is the highest recognition awarded
by the Association.
Any individual who is an active, professional philanthropic advisor is eligible for the Award. Membership in the Association is not a pre-requisite, though ability to attend the award ceremony at the AiP annual conference is a consideration.
Nominations are accepted annually from active members of the Association. Nominators write a brief biographical description of the nominee, detailing the nominee’s work portfolio and detailing the contributions they have made to the field of philanthropy services.
Nominations are to be sent to AiP by December 30, 2016 for consideration by the selection committee. The Committee reviews each nominee and selects a winner on a majority vote.
