CyberGrants presented their annual Ovation Awards at the 2018 CyberGrants User Conference in New Orleans. The Aetna Foundation and Newman’s Own Foundation were awarded “Ovations” for their philanthropic excellence.
“CyberGrants has the privilege of working with the most prestigious and generous organizations in the world. The positive impact our clients have on the greater good is truly incredible,” noted Mark Layden, CyberGrants CEO. “While we are proud to be part of all of our clients’ efforts, we would like to recognize those clients whose philanthropic efforts are consistently inspirational and raise the bar for the rest of the industry. Therefore, we created the CyberGrants ‘Ovation’ award.”
Ovation winners were selected for their philanthropic leadership, innovation and use of technology. While they come from different industries and execute a variety of giving programs, they all share a deep commitment to carrying out their visions and inspiring positive change. These companies also create innovative programming and solutions that break new ground in the industry and for other corporations and foundations. Additionally, they take the lead in leveraging technology to insure their giving is as efficient and secure as possible.
“CyberGrants uses a hand to symbolize our brand because it represents giving and receiving. ‘Giving a hand’ has two important and distinct meanings. We’re helping someone, or we’re acknowledging hard work and success. These ideas truly are the embodiment of CyberGrants, our team, but most importantly our clients. We felt an ‘Ovation’ was an apt name to use to recognize our most influential clients, as an Ovation is genuine and heartfelt celebration of truly outstanding work” explained Layden...
