SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY (December 1, 2014) – Could your nonprofit use an infusion of $5,000 to sustain one of your recent special program initiatives? That is the amount of the Innovation Award given by the Nonprofit Leadership Summit the past two years. Your group could be eligible to receive the prize on March 4, 2015 at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts when the Summit convenes for the fifth consecutive year.
The program must demonstrate innovation in the areas of collaboration, marketing and organizational operation. The unique approach must have begun on or before January 1, 2012. Unlike in previous years, there is no cap on the size of the nonprofit applying for the award. The theme of this year’s Summit is “Working together for healthier communities and improved quality of life." Relating your innovation to this theme is helpful but not required for your application.
The Awards Committee encourages you to apply and will offer support throughout the entire process with telephone guidance and one-on-one coaching from application to receipt of the award.
Letters of intent for the award are due February 1, 2015; application coaching begins on February 2; and applications are due February 13 by e-mail. The Summit Awards Committee will announce finalists on February 20. Coaching for finalist presenters will be at Bethel Woods on March 3. Innovators will make presentations to judges at the Summit on March 4 with award to follow at the end of the day’s events.
For questions, further details, and applications please contact Ms. Irene Jones, Nonprofit Leadership Summit 2015 Vice Chair of the Awards Committee, at 845-701-2532 and by e-mail at NonprofitSummit.firstname.lastname@example.org
