Managing nonprofit organizations grows more complex and challenging every year. With this $2,000 award, the Kenosha Community Foundation and the Racine Community Foundation celebrate a nonprofit organization whose leadership has made critical decisions that have built significant organizational capacity and/or led that organization on the path to sustainability. Awards such as this one encourage a growing number of nonprofits to pursue excellence in leadership and to contribute to the field's growing legacy of excellence. This new award is presented Friday, April 26, at the Nonprofit Breakfast held, for the first time, at the Kenosha Country Club.
The Nonprofit Leadership Excellence Award recognizes outstanding achievements in building capacity toward sustainability. Staff, board members, and volunteers may nominate their own organizations.
