Philanthropy News Digest
The New York Community Trust, the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, and Philanthropy New York have announced the sixth annual Nonprofit Excellence Awards, also sponsored by New York Magazine. The awards are designed to acknowledge the important role played by New York's nonprofit organizations in improving lives and communities, and to help nonprofit leaders improve the management of their organizations and inform all New Yorkers about management excellence at nonprofits.
The awards competition is open to any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Nassau County, Suffolk County, or Westchester County. National and international nonprofit organizations are eligible but must focus on management activities in the New York City area. Applications are welcome from small as well as large organizations; relatively new or well-established organizations; and any type of nonprofit, regardless of mission, religious affiliation, ethnicity, socioeconomic grouping, ideological perspective, or sexual orientation. Organizations do not need to be members of NPCC or Philanthropy New York to apply. In reviewing applications, the selection committee will take into account the management resources available to each organization in terms of funding, staff, and volunteers. Start-up nonprofits are eligible, but the application and awards process focuses on management track record and results, not future plans. Winning organizations must be excellent in multiple key areas of management. Read more>>Read more>>
