About the Awards

Managed by the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, The New York Community Trust, and sponsored by WNYC, the Nonprofit Excellence Awards program gives organizations a free 360-degree review of their management strategies in eight nationally-recognized key performance areas.

NPCC created the Nonprofit Excellence Awards in 2006 to teach, recognize and encourage outstanding management practices among New York's large and diverse nonprofit community. The Awards highlight the enormously important roles played by thousands of New York's nonprofit organizations in improving our lives and communities. The program helps nonprofit leaders by spotlighting excellent management practices that enable nonprofits to better serve their communities and achieve their missions.

All applicants are eligible to receive detailed feedback on how to improve their management performance and how to implement and sustain best practices.

A total of $50,000 will be awarded to nine organizations: $10,000 for Overall Management Excellence, and eight $5,000 Awards for the nonprofit with the most outstanding management practices for each of the Eight Key Areas of Nonprofit Excellence. It will be possible for one organization to win in one or more categories, although our ultimate goal is to recognize as many nonprofits as possible. Winning organizations may also receive scholarships towards tuition at the Columbia Business School Executive Education Programs in Social Enterprise. Winners will be honored at our Inaugural Excellence in Nonprofit Management Conference and Awards Ceremony in December 2018.

Readiness Assessment and Part One Application will be available March 5, 2018.
