2016 Nonprofit Awareness Day


On June 27, 2016, House Speaker Robert DeLeo, Senate President Stan Rosenberg, and Secretary Peyser joined hundreds of nonprofit and business leaders at the State House to celebrate the work of the nonprofit sector and raise awareness of causes throughout the state at MNN’s annual celebration of Nonprofit Awareness Day, presented by Citizens Bank. The highlight of the celebration, the Nonprofit Excellence Awards, were presented to seven nonprofit organizations and employees that exemplify the most innovative, creative and effective work being done throughout the Commonwealth. You can view the impressive finalists and winners here.

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.
