The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and MAP for Nonprofits are seeking nominations for the 2012 Minnesota Nonprofit Awards, to be presented at Allied for Action, MCN and MCF’s joint annual conference.
The Nonprofit Excellence Awards accept self nominations from Minnesota-based 501(c)(3) organizations that are at least five years old and have a local governance and management structure. Two nonprofits will win: one with a budget under $1.5 million, one over $1.5 million. Award criteria are based on how closely the organizations align with MCN’s Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence.
The Nonprofit Mission Awards recognize outstanding contributions in the categories of:
- Anti-Racism Initiative and
- Responsive Philanthropy
Staff members, board members, volunteers, program recipients, donors or other supporters may nominate a nonprofit for a Mission Award. Nominees will be judged by leaders in the nonprofit community coordinated by MAP.
Get your nominations in soon! They’re due May 31 at 4 p.m.
Recipients will be announced in September and presented on November 2 at the MCN/MCF Joint Annual Conference. Registering for the joint conference gets you free admission to the presentation. If you would like to attend the ceremony, but not register for the entire conference, special luncheon tickets are available. Visit www.alliedforaction.org to sign up.
