Eide Bailly Resourcefullness Award
We’re inspired to celebrate the nonprofit industry.
Congratulations to our 2023 Resourcefullness Winner: Project Chimps!
Rewarding the fulfilling and meaningful work of nonprofits across the U.S.
Eide Bailly’s Resourcefullness Award is designed to support the financial health of the nonprofit sector by recognizing and celebrating nonprofits for their creative, revenue-generating initiatives. Each year, we award a $50,000 grand prize to one remarkable organization.
Through a short application process, three judges from outside of the firm select one 501(c)(3) organization as the award winner. We are grateful for our external judges who graciously dedicate significant time reviewing the outstanding submissions each year:
- Anne Hindery, CEO | Nonprofit Association of the Midlands
- Chris Simonsen, CEO | Orangewood Foundation
- Fay DeBellis, Senior VP, Institutional Consultant | Graystone Consulting from Morgan Stanley
Our Resourcefullness Award would not be possible without them.
