Thank you for taking the time to recommend candidates for Ingram’s Local Heroes awards, an annual recognition of individuals in the Kansas City region for their exceptional commitment to philanthropy and voluntarism on behalf of non-profit organizations. Please provide names and contact information for your candidates, whether they are part of your organization or another. We also ask that you include a brief statement of why you believe they are among the region’s most caring, compassionate and committed givers, provide metrics (donation amounts, volunteer hours, etc.) if possible. The deadline for consideration is Friday, Oct. 27, 2023, and the Local Heroes will be published in the December 2023 Philanthropy edition.
