During the past several months, many nonprofit organizations ramped up their services, directly or indirectly due to COVID-19’s impact on our community. Some created new services, others helped soaring numbers of people through the services they already provide. Some did both. Some struggled just to survive.
How do they get recognized?
One way is by winning the annual $25,000 Anisfield-Wolf Memorial Award, which has been referred to as the “Academy Award” and the “Good Housekeeping Seal” of the nonprofit field in Northeast Ohio.
Who will be this year’s winner?
This year, the award winner will be announced during the second segment of our free, virtual Celebration of Human Services on Friday, October 16, at 1 p.m.*
This award is not for excellence in performing routine tasks.
This award is not for excellence in performing routine tasks. Rather, it’s for service that is outstanding because of quality or quantity; because it was new, original, or innovative; or for other significant reasons. In order to reflect the passion of its founder, Edith Anisfield Wolf, the award usually focuses on giving voices to people at the margins and building a more just community.
Might this year’s winner be an organization that helps or serves:
- Older persons?
- Homeless persons?
- Persons with disabilities?
- People struggling with addictions?
- People in need of legal help?
- The environment?
- The arts?
It could be any of those—or something else entirely. Northeast Ohio is fortunate to have many dedicated professionals and volunteers providing many types of services for our health and welfare.
