BizTimes Media has launched an awards program to call attention to the region’s top corporate citizens and most effective nonprofit organizations.
The inaugural Nonprofit Excellence Awards program will salute the work of for-profit organizations, executives and professionals who donate their time, talent and treasure to community causes. On the nonprofit side, awards will highlight organizations and leaders making southeastern Wisconsin a better place to live, work and play.
Award winners will be celebrated during a Nov. 4 breakfast and ceremony at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino Events Center in Milwaukee.
Self-nominations on both the corporate and nonprofit side will be accepted. Award nominations, submitted through a form, are due by Friday, Aug. 29. Corporate citizens and nonprofits may be nominated for multiple categories. Nominators must complete a new form for each category.
The Nonprofit Excellence Awards’ corporate citizen awards feature five categories: Corporate Citizen of the Year, Next Generation Leadership, In-Kind Supporter, Corporate Volunteer of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement.
The program’s nonprofit awards feature four categories: Nonprofit (organization) of the year, Nonprofit Collaboration of the year award, Nonprofit Executive of the Year and Social Enterprise.
Nonprofit nominees must be tax exempt 501(c)(3) organizations based in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington, Racine, Kenosha, Walworth or Sheboygan counties. Chapters or affiliate national organizations may be nominated if they are locally managed.
