The Plutus Foundation awarded more grants.
We hosted the first ever Plutus Impact Summit.
The Plutus Community continued to grow.
In the past year, hundreds of content creators shared opportunities, asned and answered questions, and began new collaborations through our Plutus Community, a members-only community group organized on Facebook.
The 12th Annual Plutus Awards ceremony was held in Austin.
Plutus Voices events are postponed to 2022.
The Plutus Awards Podcast With Sarah Li Cain featured many guests.
The Plutus Awards Showcase highlights the week's best articles and episodes from the community.
Every Friday, the Plutus Awards team looks for the best new articles, posts, podcast episodes, and videos from throughout the world of financial media. We bring the five best to you each week. Sometimes, the articles are focused around a theme, but usually, we are just looking for excellent content.
The Plutus Foundation thanks our team and our supporters.
Capital Group continued to partner with the Plutus Foundation as the headline partner for the 12th Annual Plutus Awards and the national partner for Plutus Voices. We can’t thank Capital Group and their agency, Golin, enough for their support in a year where the pandemic has significantly changed the form of our events.
As written above, the Foundation and Awards teams have worked so hard to create projects, support this community, and get the word out about all that we do. Thank you to all who have helped, whether it was in the form of organizing a series of virtual events or stepping in to run an Instagram takeover.
Thank you to our board of directors, who have continued to provide excellent governance and help us connect with resources. You may apply for the board of directors at any time.
And I would like to offer a big round of applause to everyone who has made a financial contribution to the Plutus Foundation. Contributions go directly to the programs we support and operate. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, your contributions are tax-deductible.
Thanks especially to all who have initiated an automatic monthly contribution. You, too, can support the Plutus Foundation with a monthly or one-time contribution.
You can donate or sell your blog or other property to the Plutus Foundation. There may be tax advantages for doing so. Contact us for more information.
We're looking ahead to 2022.
The Plutus Foundation is committed to growing again in the coming year. We plan to build upon our success with the grant program by offering more grants and working to track the impact our grants are having in our community of financial content creators and beyond.
As mentioned above, we intend for Plutus Voices to move back into in-person events when it is safe to do so. In addition to Detroit, we are planning events in Portland, Los Angeles, Orlando, New York City, and other locations to be announced soon.
The Plutus Impact Summit will return as a virtual event this summer before potentially moving to an in-person event in 2023.
The 13th Annual Plutus Awards will be getting underway very soon! We will be looking for members of the community to join the Plutus Awards Panel to help determine this year’s awards categories. And beginning this year, winners will receive a cash prize.
