Nonprofit Center calling for award nominations

The Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee is seeking nominations for its 2014 Nonprofit Excellence Awards, which “highlight innovation and exceptional organizational performance” among nonprofits, according to the organization.


Awards are distributed in five categories: board governance, collaboration, community organizing, diversity and fiscal integrity.

Nominated organizations must be tax-exempt 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) organizations based in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Washington or Waukesha Counties. Chapters or affiliates of national organizations are also eligible for nomination if they are “locally managed and have separate chapter or affiliate financial information available,” according to the Nonprofit Center.

Individuals can submit nominations for nonprofits whether or not they are directly involved with its charitable efforts.

Individuals nominating an organization may only enter that organization into one award category. The Nonprofit Center will not grant multiple awards to a single organization.

Award-winning organizations will be highlighted in the Nonprofit Center’s print materials, on its website and through it social media outlets. Additionally, winners will be saluted at the 20th annual Spirit of the Nonprofit Sector Celebration of Excellence program, scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 4, at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee.

Award nominations are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 5, and consist of a form and a letter of support.
