On June 8, 2015, hundreds of nonprofit and business leaders, plus elected officials, celebrated the work of the nonprofit sector and raised awareness of causes throughout the state at MNN’s 8th annual celebration of Nonprofit Awareness Day, presented by Citizens Bank.
The highlight of the celebration, MNN’s Nonprofit Excellence Awards, were presented to eight nonprofit organizations and employees that exemplify the most innovative, creative and effective work being done throughout the Commonwealth.

In addition, Senate President Stanley Rosenberg was presented with the Public Official of the Year Award for his support of the nonprofit sector.
Massachusetts was the first state in the country to have an annual Nonprofit Awareness Day, which was recognized and signed into law by Governor Deval Patrick in 2008.
