Local Focus. Lasting Impact.™ Awards

Local Focus. Lasting Impact.™ Awards

The Nonprofit Center has celebrated innovation and collaboration in the sector since 2013 through the Local Focus. Lasting Impact.™ The Awards, developed as a result of the Moving Forward Together initiative, have morphed over time, but since 2016 have celebrated two categories: Social Innovation & Collective Power.

 

2020 APPLICATIONS

Due to the extenuating circumstances surrounding the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, the application has been condensed and the recognition structure has expanded. There will still be two award winners and we have added 5 smaller cash prize recognitions to increase access to capital for local nonprofits during this crisis. Please review the full changes on this blog post or on the application form.

2020 Applications are now live and the first recognition will occur on May 15! Applications are due no later than midnight Sunday, May 10, 2020
