During CCP's 50th Anniversary year we recognized philanthropic leadership and service with two of our prestigious awards:
Awardees were honored at CCP's 2019 Annual Conference, Reimagining Philanthropy: Strategies for Success, on May 7.
John H. Filer Award
The John H. Filer Award was established by CCP's Board of Directors in 1997 to honor the memory of an individual who inspired his peers in Hartford’s business community by example and urged the nation’s business leaders to accept the responsibility of corporate citizenship. The Filer Award is given to an individual or individuals who are leaders in promoting private action for the public good. Nominees should embody a creative spirit and serve as a model and inspiration to others in promoting philanthropy and solving societal problems.
Martha S. Newman Award
The Martha S. Newman Award was established to honor the memory of Martha Newman, a much-loved and well-respected member of the philanthropic community in Hartford for many years. Martha set the standard for an exemplary staff member. The Newman Award is given to a staff member of a philanthropic organization who has demonstrated sustained and exemplary service to one or more organizations and the philanthropic sector in the state.
Nancy P. Roberts Award
In May 2013, CCP's board established the Nancy P. Roberts Award for demonstrated innovation in philanthropy to honor Nancy's outstanding contribution to philanthropy in Connecticut.
