Gold Awards for Fundraising Excellence Final Deadline Friday!
You asked for it, and you got it.
FundRaising Success has been flooded with requests to extend the deadline for our ninth annual Gold Awards for Fundraising Excellence, and we heard you loud and clear. That's why we've decided to push the limits of our production cycle and extended the deadline an extra week.
But that's as far as we can push it. The deadline is now Aug. 29 — and note, that's delivery, not postmark. In order to get the judging and write-ups done in time for the October issue, that's the final date we can accept awards, period.
This year’s full lineup of categories is Direct Mail, Email, Multichannel, Telefundraising, Special Event, Peer-to-Peer, Website, Social-Media Mastery and On the Edge. You can find the entry forms here, more information on the awards here and a list of past winners here. Don’t forget, the final deadline is now Aug. 29, and in order for a campaign to be eligible, it must have taken place between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 of 2013. The 2014 Gold Awards winners will be announced in the October issue of FundRaising Success.
Download the entry form here. There is a $125 entry fee for the first entry from a company and/or nonprofit organization, and each additional entry costs $75 apiece.
Each entry must be submitted individually and be accompanied by its own entry form, tracking sheet and check. Please submit two copies of each entry.
Entries should be mailed to:
