The 2012 Irish Philanthropist of the Year Awards will take place on 12 December 2012 from 12.15 to 14.30 at Number 10 Ormond Quay, Dublin.
The winners will be announced at a special luncheon for 70 people with awards presented under three categories, National, International and Corporate. The awards, run by the Community Foundation for Ireland, are now in their fifth year and 2012 is the first year an award will be given within the corporate sector, with the local and national award being combined.
The awards aim to recognise extraordinary individuals who have shown outstanding leadership in the area of personal philanthropy and who, through their giving, have made a difference in bringing about sustainable social change. Categories for nominations include National, International and Corporate Philanthropist of the Year.
Each year the Community Foundation seeks nominations from community, voluntary and charity groups around the country which may wish to recognise an outstanding patron who has helped their cause over the years. Previous winners have included some of the most prominent business people in Ireland as well as Irish band U2.
