The Signature Grand
On Friday, February 24th, 2017, Broward County non-profit organizations will be recognized by the community they serve for their tireless efforts and impact. At the 7th Annual Community Care Plan Non-Profit Awards Presented by Signature Grand and Hosted by 2-1-1- Broward, the efforts of Broward County non-profits and the accomplishments of non-profit leaders will be collectively recognized at the Awards ceremony and luncheon.
2-1-1 Broward is now accepting nominations for outstanding individual and organizational efforts in nine categories: Arts, Board Leader, Collaboration, Collective Impact for Youth, Innovation, Non-Profit Leader, Organization of the Year, and Rising Star. All 501(c)(3) organizations are encouraged to submit an application.
NEW! Organizations may submit in more than one category. Please note that an organization can only be named as a finalist in one category based on the highest score. Up to three finalists will be selected in each category by a panel of impartial judges. Finalists will be revealed at the VIP Announcement Party in January 2017. Winners of the awards will be revealed at the Awards ceremony and luncheon. Winning individuals/organizations will receive a $1,000 grant to their organization. Up to two finalists per category will each receive a $500 grant to their organization. Finalists will receive publicity and awareness for the mission of their organization through event press, media materials, newsletters and social media coverage. Qualified applicants not named as finalists will be entered for a chance to receive the Publix Community Choice Award. The community will select the winner of the Publix Community Choice Award by voting online for their favorite organization. (Please note that grants awarded for the collaboration category will be divided equally among the collaborating organizations by the submitting agency.)
