Our nonprofit industry advisory group is thrilled to offer this opportunity for nonprofit organizations who develop outstanding initiatives to support their communities. Our Resourcefullness Award program was established in 2013 and each year we receive an abundance of wonderful applications. It’s hard choosing a winner! Ultimately, we are passionate about helping our nonprofit clients (and non-clients) thrive and succeed. This award program allows us to showcase nonprofit organizations that stand out and in turn, other nonprofits can learn new trends, ideas and campaign strategies.
