Northeast Ohio Pillar Award

Since 1998, The Medical Mutual Pillar Award for Community Service, presented by Smart Business, honors businesses of all types and sizes that make outstanding contributions to their communities. Its purpose is to encourage a charitable environment, recognize creative efforts that make a difference and demonstrate the ties between the for-profit and nonprofit worlds.

The Pillar Award for Community Service currently takes place in the cities of ClevelandColumbus and Cincinnati.

The Pillar Award embraces a broad definition of community service. It may consist of charitable giving, volunteerism, pro bono work or other forms of giving back. Service may be limited to a single organization or cause, or spread across numerous organizations and causes. Each nominee will be judged based on impact relative to its size rather than overall size of contribution or effort.
