What Does it Take to Become an Award-Winning Nonprofit?

Picture this: your nonprofit has just won an award! Your organization makes a huge impact on your community every day, but today your success will be recognized. News of this award will be shared in tomorrow’s paper and across social media, bringing new awareness of your now award-winning nonprofit. And the award has funds attached, so your organization will be able to serve your community even more!

Sounds great, right? Receiving awards as a nonprofit not only provides you with funds to deliver your mission but can help increase awareness of all the good you do. Getting your nonprofit’s name in the spotlight generates press coverage, inspires new donors, and validates that you and your team are changing lives for the better!

There are many perks to winning awards. So how can your organization become an award-winning nonprofit?

We found out what it takes in our brand-new Award-Winning Nonprofit Kit. In it, we analyzed three nonprofit organizations across a range of different service areas, sizes, and geographic locations that recently won awards. You’ll follow along their journeys to discover what each organization did to stand out and learn the common threads that tie award-winning nonprofits together.

For example, we found that award-winning nonprofits excel at quantifying their impact. They go beyond saying “we help people,” showing instead how many people, with what methods, and for what purpose. And even beyond, what impact did they have on lives, from each individual client to the community as a whole. The ability to clearly quantify impact helps award committees understand the scale of what you do every day.
