2010 Campbell & Co. Awards: Nominate Your Nonprofit!
Has your organization stepped up and out to exceed expectations this year thanks to a creative campaign or initiative? The 2010 Campbell & Co. Awards for Excellence in Fundraising, presented by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, is looking for organizations that:
*Have overcome significant challenges to meet or exceed goals;
*Have developed innovative new programs (or tweaked existing ones) to raise needed funds; and/or
*Have turned the tables on the economy by expanding donor base or reaching out to new groups of donors in a significant way.
Other criteria include streamlining administrative structure and reducing fundraising costs. Any type of fundraising campaign — annual giving, capital, planned giving, major gift, online, special events, etc. — is eligible for the award.
The deadline to submit a nomination is Sept. 15.
