The GOS Outstanding Philanthropic Group award is open to any group, such as service clubs, associations, employee groups, or people who have joined together to help change their part of the world. Please note that Specific or Singular events cannot be nominated. Events or a series of events can be part of an overall philanthropic program, strategy or engagement but one event cannot be the sole focus of the Group’s involvement. The nominee must not have received the award in the past five years. A full list of past honourees is on our website. There are Nominees that have won the award twice, so don’t be swayed if your donor has received the award previously.
