Join us online and share your favorite #GivingHero story
This giving season, the Carnegie family of institutions and the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy pay tribute to those whose generosity makes them everyday heroes, offers inspiration, and cultivates a culture of giving.


The highlight of the tribute was on November 25, 2017, Andrew Carnegie’s birthday, when the Empire State Building joined in the celebration. The iconic tower was lit in colors of the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy tartan—navy, purple, and yellow—to celebrate Andrew Carnegie.

In honor of Andrew Carnegie, our giving hero, we are asking others to share their standout #GivingHero stories.
