Nonprofit Excellence Awards

Nonprofit professionals work tirelessly at organizations that deliver much-needed services to our communities. At The Nonprofit Partnership, we think these agencies and their people deserve to be more than your average unsung heroes.

So, what's to be done? Send a thank-you note? Nah, not good enough. How about a virtual high-five? Boring! Let's kick it up a notch - let's throw these rockstars a party and recognize their awesome work!

Introducing... drum roll please...
