Fundraiser of the Year Awards Deadline Is NOW!
OK, all you last-minute Lucys ... the time is now. The deadline for the 2011 Fundraising Professionals of the Year Awards is this Friday, Jan. 7.
If you haven't already nominated someone, you really don't have much time. And this already is the extended deadline. There won't be any more extensions ... no, really ... there won't.
There's no fee to nominate someone, and the application process couldn't be easier. Simply send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line "FOTY Nomination."
In it, please include your name and contact information; the nominee's name, title, organization, phone number and e-mail address; along with a detailed explanation of why you're making the nomination (500 to 1,000 words, please). If possible, a digital headshot of the nominee would be great. Also, let us know into which of these categories you're entering the nominee:
- Lifetime Achievement — Based on a body of work over the course of 30+ years.
- Fundraising Professional of the Year — Based on a specific fundraising achievement in 2010.
- Fundraising Stars — Based on a body of work, a compelling project or special circumstance, an overall attitude or approach, etc.
- Rising Stars — Up-and-comers with fewer than five years in the sector.
Peace & Blessings,
