Grantmakers In Health Invites Nominations for 2011 Terrance Keenan Leadership Award in Health Philanthropy
Deadline: September 10, 2010

The Terrance Keenan Leadership Award in Health Philanthropy is awarded annually by Grantmakers In Health to an outstanding grantmaker whose leadership and thoughtful application of philanthropic resources have forged permanent improvements in health through innovation, risk taking, and boldness. The award recipient’s achievements will exemplify responsiveness to people in communities, large or small, with a particular emphasis on reaching those most in need.

To be eligible, a nominee must be, or have been within the last three years, an active grantmaker for at least five years with a U.S. grantmaking organization in the field of health, serving as a trustee, staff member, or donor. Nominees can be at any stage in their careers — the award honors grantmakers whether they are in the midst of their service to the field or are at the end of their career. Current GIH board members are not eligible for nomination.

Any individual or organization may nominate a grantmaker to receive the award.

The 2011 Leadership Award will be presented at the Grantmakers In Health Annual Meeting on Health Philanthropy, March 2-4, in Los Angeles. The award includes a $5,000 honorarium.

The award program brochure is available at the GIH Web site.
