2017 Nonprofit Awareness Day

On June 5, 2017, House Speaker Robert DeLeo, former Senate President Stan Rosenberg, and Jay Ash, Secretary of Housing and Economic Development, joined hundreds of nonprofit and business leaders at the State House to celebrate Nonprofit Awareness Day, a statewide holiday signed into law by Governor Deval Patrick 10 years ago. This celebration was hosted by the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network and presented by Citizens Bank.

During Nonprofit Awareness Day, Nonprofit Excellence Awards were presented to four organizations and two professionals exemplifying the innovative and effective work of nonprofits across Massachusetts. The winners were nominated by peers and community members then selected by an independent panel of nonprofit and business leaders. This year, MNN received over 125 Nonprofit Excellence Award nominations. You can view the impressive finalists and winners here.
