Nominations close on Friday, December 9, 2022
WASHINGTON, DC, October 3, 2022—Grantmakers In Health (GIH) has opened the 2023 nominations for the Andy Hyman Award for Advocacy and Terrance Keenan Leadership Award in Health Philanthropy. Nominations for both awards may be submitted online through the GIH website until Friday, December 9, 2022.
“GIH’s annual awards lift up the contributions of talented professionals who, through their work in health philanthropy, or in the nonprofit and public sectors, are advancing better health for all,” said Dr. Cara V. James, GIH President and CEO.
First presented by GIH in 1993, the Terrance Keenan Leadership Award recognizes and rewards grantmakers whose thoughtful use of philanthropic dollars has had an impact on human health, at any level. Award recipients’ work should demonstrate responsiveness to the people in their communities, large or small, with a particular focus on those in the greatest need.
Established by GIH in 2017, the Andy Hyman Award for Advocacy is presented each year to an outstanding advocacy grantee from the nonprofit or public sectors who embodies a commitment to principled action, leadership to advance social change, and dedication to making progress in policy and practice despite challenging political environments.
Awardee announcements will be made in March 2023, and recipients will be presented with the awards at the 2023 GIH Annual Conference on Health Philanthropy on June 7 – 9, 2023 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
