There is, however, one in particular for grantmakers. The Great Giving* Funders Award is for funders (trusts, foundations, companies, etc) that “demonstrate a clear understanding of their beneficiaries and funding environment”.Nominations for the 2013 Social Change Awards close on Sunday 16 September 2013.The DSC’s judging panel will select three shortlist nominees for each category and they will be presented for the public vote in October. Winners and runners-up of each category will receive a personalised, framed drawing from Grizelda during the Social Change Awards Ceremony in December.DSC often styles these awards as different from many others in the charity sector. There is no monetary award for finalists or winners and the awards ceremony takes a much more informal approach than some of the other black tie events. 6 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
