Six nonprofit groups from across the New York City area have been chosen as finalists for the 2017 New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Awards. The Awards program engages nonprofit applicants in a 360-degree review of all of their management practices, provides expert feedback for improvement, and recognizes management excellence. Chosen by an expert 30-member selection committee, these organizations are in the running to win cash prizes and scholarships to Columbia Business School Programs for leadership and management.

Since 2006, the Nonprofit Excellence Awards program has raised awareness of the importance of the diverse nonprofit community in the New York City area, highlighted best practices in NPCC’s Eight Key Areas of Nonprofit Excellence, and helped organizations reflect on as well as improve what it takes to achieve management excellence. In the past decade, nearly 75% of applicants made changes to their management practices as a result of their participation in the Awards program.

This year's finalists are:

Brooklyn Community Services (Brooklyn) empowers at-risk children, youth and families, and adults with mental illness or developmental disabilities to overcome the obstacles they face.
Congratulate them!
