Pursuant Announces Inaugural Forty Over Forty Award Program
Pursuant, a fundraising and marketing agency, serving the nonprofit sector, announces the launch of a new award program, recognizing the work of nonprofit professionals who are driving lasting change around the world. The Pursuant 40 Over 40 Award is designed to celebrate the longevity of impact by honoring those who consistently set a high bar for excellence in the nonprofit sector — elevating their organization, the people around them, and the lives of the people who want to make a difference in the world.
"Having dedicated 20-plus years of my career to the philanthropic sector, I've had the benefit of learning from many exceptional leaders," states Kelley Hecht Stewart, executive vice president, client solutions at Pursuant. "With so many awards celebrating rising talent, we felt it was time to shine a light on the leaders who have left an indelible mark on the sector through the longevity of their careers."
Innovated by Pursuant, the award program was co-developed by a committee of nonprofit executives from leading organizations in the sector, including NonProfit Pro, Merkle RMG, and Barker & Scott. The collaboration blends industry experience, insights, and perspectives to identify and recognize the community of leaders.
Pursuant is currently accepting nominations and invites the industry to play an active role in recognizing excellence and celebrating impact. Fundraisers, marketers, and partners throughout the country can nominate peers who are over 40 years old and meet the awards criteria, including continued impact and innovation, and commitment to DEI (Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion). Honorees will be announced in mid-summer and will be celebrated throughout the industry.
"The Pursuant 40 Over 40 Award is our opportunity to recognize the transformational leaders that make up the sector," states Jennifer Bielat, executive vice president, client strategy at Pursuant. "We are committed to honoring their hard work and dedication, and look forward to celebrating these individuals who have positively impacted our industry and the philanthropic community."
Deadline for submission is Friday, March 11, 2022. For more information or to submit a nomination for the Pursuant Forty over Forty Award, please go to info.pursuant.com/40over40.
