Each year, NonProfit PRO honors some the best fundraising campaigns of the past year with the Gold Awards for Fundraising Excellence.
The awards change a little each year based on observations made the previous year, but each year the awards focus on fundraising campaigns and their creative. The categories for 2016 are:
• Direct Mail
• Sustainer/Monthly Giving
• Peer-to-Peer (campaigns centered on P2P fundraising)
• Special Event
• Social-Media Mastery
• On the Edge
In order for a campaign to be eligible, it must have taken place in the prior year. The 2016 Gold Awards will honor campaigns completed between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2015, with the winners announced in the November/December issue. You can view past winners here.
You can submit your nominations throughout the year, with the deadline for the year’s awards in late summer. There is a $125 entry fee for the first entry from a company and/or nonprofit organization, and each additional entry costs $75 apiece.
Each entry must be submitted individually and be accompanied by its own entry form and check. Please submit two copies of each entry. Note: All forms must now also be completed electronically. (See below for online form.)
