The New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Awards, a program created and run by the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, is the only Award of its kind recognizing excellence in nonprofit management.

An expert 32-member Selection committee chose the finalists from a pool of 11 semifinalists following an intensive application, readiness assessment and vetting process that identifies excellent and replicable management practices among nonprofits in the five boroughs, Long Island and Westchester.
