Yulanda M Faris Young Philanthropist Award Launched
The Community Arts Council of Vancouver (CACV) has launched the Yulanda M. Faris Young Philanthropist Award to recognize leaders in arts fundraising under 35 years old.

The criteria for the award will consist of the following: leadership in recent projects or activities supporting the arts, major gifts to arts organizations, board service, and commitment to raising the profile of the arts in Greater Vancouver. As there are a variety of ways to demonstrate leadership in philanthropy, the ideal candidate will fulfill some of these criteria, not all, and/or a combination of them.

Deadline for nominations is October 31st, 2016.
