About the Awards

It takes more than passion to achieve your nonprofit mission. It takes strong management


Managed by the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, The New York Community Trustand Philanthropy New York, and sponsored by WNYC, the Awards program gives organizations a FREE 360-degree review of their key management strategies in eight nationally-recognized key performance areas. 


Now in its eighth year, the Nonprofit Excellence Awards program teaches, recognizes and encourages outstanding management practices among New York's large and diverse nonprofit community. The Awards recognize the enormously important roles played by thousands of New York's nonprofit organizations in improving our lives and communities. The program helps nonprofit leaders by spotlighting excellent management practices that enable nonprofits to better serve their communities and achieve their missions. 


All applicants are eligible to receive detailed feedback on how to improve their management performance and how to implement and sustain best practices.
 

Winning organizations will receive a total of $60,000 in cash awards, special mention in WNYC and other media, and scholarships for  Columbia Business School Executive Education's Programs in Social Enterprise. Winners will also be honored at a special Awards Presentation in November, 2014.
