Fundraising Professionals of the Year Awards Submission Deadline Extended
As we barrel into the always-hectic holiday season, we realize that doing anything above and beyond the normal scope of your job is tough. So we've extended the deadline for submitting a nomination to the 2011 FundRaising Success Fundraising Professionals of the Year Awards until Jan. 7.
Each year, we honor folks in the fundraising sector whose passion and dedication are so strong that they merit special recognition — not only in appreciation for the work they do but also so they can be examples for others in the sector.
There's no fee to nominate someone, and the application process couldn't be easier. Simply send an e-mail to me at 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.
Winners will be announced in the February 2011 issue of the magazine. Need some inspiration? Check out the 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007 winners.
