Awards will be distributed to individuals and nonprofit organizations in the following six categories:

Excellence in Advocacy
Excellence in Innovation
Excellence in Leadership
Excellence in Community-Building (new this year!)
Excellence by a Small Nonprofit 
Excellence by a Young Professional 

All nominees will receive recognition at this year’s event, in addition to the finalists and award winners. The nominations review process is currently underway. Stay tuned for more information.


This year’s ceremony will take place on the evening of June 12, 2024 at the New England Aquarium. Hundreds of nonprofit professionals, organizations, affiliate businesses, and supporters are expected to gather to celebrate the sector. Registration and ticketing information to come.
