The project director, Emma Bricks Oko who hinted the pressmen said the award is beyond handing plaques to awardees. He said the award will serve as an induction into the Philanthropy Community of Nigeria, (PCN) for all recipients.

Bricks disclosed that the award ceremony will hold with a gala night to celebrate the philanthropists.
