2024 Nonprofit Professionals of the Year Nominations

NonProfit PRO is now accepting nominations for its annual Nonprofit Professional of the Year Awards. Fill out the form below to tell us all about the deserving nonprofit professional you’d like to nominate. The nominee can be an inspiring colleague, volunteer, friend, relative or community member.

Here’s an overview of each category:

  • Nonprofit Professional of the Year. While there aren’t title limitations, typically this person is a leader or senior member of an organization who took the nonprofit to new heights. Though they didn’t do it alone, their leadership was key to the nonprofit’s recent success.
  • Fundraiser of the Year. We’re not necessarily looking for who raised the most money, we want to hear about the fundraiser who made the biggest impact for your nonprofit.
  • Unsung Heroes. Everyone at your nonprofit could fall into this category, but who does so much for the organization, but gets little to no recognition? A board member? A marketer? Someone else who does it all? Let’s change that and acknowledge their important contributions.
  • Rising Stars. We don’t want to put an age limit or title requirement on this award, but nominate someone who is an up-and-comer in the nonprofit sector. It could be someone new to the sector or new to nonprofit management — and anywhere in between.
  • Lifetime Achievement. Unlike the other categories, highlight the nominee’s decades-long devotion to nonprofit causes and all of the accomplishments along the way. We want to review their overall career commitment to the nonprofit sector and be amazed.

The deadline to enter is Oct. 2, 2024.

A panel of judges at NonProfit PRO will select the winners who will be featured on NonProfit PRO’s website and in its e-newsletter.

Please note that, due to the number of overall submissions received, we cannot confirm receipt of individual nominations via email.
