Who to Nominate
We welcome nominations from all sectors of the philanthropic community. Nominees do not need to be current members of ADO, and self-nominations are encouraged.
How to Nominate
Click here to complete the nomination form, comprising a one-page letter (approximately 500 words) describing your nominee, including the range and impact of their activities, contributions and/or leadership. Nominations should detail a nominee’s involvement in and contributions to a particular organization and may also include the nominee's involvement in the community. A panel of judges will make the final selection for the awards. Not every award is given every year. Encourage others to nominate the same candidate; multiple nominations can provide the panel with different perspectives and information about a potential winner.
