Three nonprofit organizations have been chosen as the winners of the 2017 New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Awards—a program created and managed by the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York (NPCC)—for demonstrating excellence in nonprofit management in NPCC’s Eight Key Areas of Nonprofit Excellence. The winning organizations demonstrated excellence in management with innovative and replicable practices, as determined by a 29-member selection committee after going through an intensive nine month vetting and 360-degree review process of their management practices.

The winners will participate in the Awards presentation, which includes the Best Practices Workshop, a moderated panel discussion where they will share the management practices that led to their selection. The three winners will receive cash prizes and the winners along with the other three finalists will receive scholarships to Columbia Business School Executive Education Programs in Social Enterprise. The Awards program will be followed by a networking reception. To register for the event, visit
