It's time to get serious about celebrating the outstanding work of New York nonprofits. The Nonprofit Excellence Awards are presented by the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York in collaboration with The New York Community Trust and Philanthropy New York; they will be sponsored for the first time this year by New York Magazine.
The Nonprofit Excellence Awards honor high standards in nonprofit management and seek to recognize effective practices that help nonprofit organizations better serve their communities and accomplish their missions. Among past winners are Groundwork, Inc., Itefayo Cultural Arts, and City Harvest.

Paper and online applications must be received (or submitted) by 10:00 am, Friday, May 18, 2012.
