On Friday, February 28, 2014, Broward County nonprofit organizations will be recognized by the community they serve for their tireless efforts. At the 4th Annual PNC Bank Non-Profit Academy Awards, presented by 2-1-1 Broward, 2-1-1 Broward will recognize the collective efforts of Broward County non-profits and the accomplishments of non-profit leaders at an Awards ceremony and luncheon.
2-1-1 Broward accepted nominations for outstanding individual and organizational efforts in nine categories: Arts, Board Leader, Collaboration, Collective Impact for Youth, Innovation, Lifetime Achievement, Non-Profit Leader, Organization of the Year, and Rising Star. Both young and established 501(c)(3) organizations are encouraged to submit an application. The community will select the winner of the Community Choice Award by voting online for their favorite organization.
Up to three finalists were selected in each category by a panel of impartial judges. Winners of the awards were revealed at the event. Winning individuals and organizations will each receive a $1,000 grant to their organization. Up to two finalists per category will each receive a $500 grant to their organization. Please note that grants awarded for the collaboration category will be divided equally among the collaborating organizations by the submitting agency. Finalists will receive publicity and awareness of the work of their organization through event press, media materials and online and social media coverage. Qualified applicants not named as finalists will be entered for a chance to receive the Community Choice Award.
2-1-1 is the first call for help for Broward County residents and the gateway to health and human services in our community. Last year, 2-1-1 Broward connected more than 109,000 Broward County residents with 4,000 different programs that were available to help them. Please be sure YOUR non-profit is registered with 2-1-1 Broward.
