Orange Circle Award Nominations
Nominations are now being accepted for the Orange Circle Award as part of Philanthropy Week. Nominations are due by Jan. 31.
The Orange Circle Award honors individuals and groups who go above and beyond in their daily lives and who possess a deep responsibility for extraordinary philanthropic acts. These are not limited to financial support, but also include volunteerism—those acts that better society through contributions of time and talent.
All Syracuse University alumni, faculty, staff, administration, students, and student organizations are eligible to nominate individuals or groups they feel are worthy recipients of the Orange Circle Award.
Orange Circle nominees must exemplify the following qualities and characteristics:
– They must be affiliated in some way with Syracuse University, but not necessarily be students or alumni. Members of the SU faculty and staff are also eligible; however, students and alumni will comprise at least two-thirds of Orange Circle winners.
– They must exhibit the best qualities of Orange spirit—the willingness to work hard, a concern for others, and a desire to change the lives of others for the better.
– They must have an outstanding record of service and philanthropy to their cause. This service may or may not be in the form of financial support; contributions of time and/or talent are also valuable forms of philanthropy.
– They must have a history of dedication and service to Syracuse University.
