|Award for Nonprofit Excellence|
Begin the Journey to Excellence
Since 2003, SCANPO has been recognizing organizations that embody excellence within our sector. Using the Guiding Principles & Best Practices as a framework, the Award for Nonprofit Excellence singles out two organizations that embody this continued pursuit of excellence.
SCANPO believes that excellence isn’t the completion of a checklist, it is a fundamentally transformative pursuit of the highest standards and practices. We hope each SCANPO member organization uses the Guiding Principles & Best Practices as a living document, allowing us the opportunity to re-evaluate our practices and priorities.
JOURNEY TO EXCELLENCE WEBINARS
SCANPO has assembled a core group of leaders from 10+ winning organizations from across the state who are willing to share the steps each took to lead their staff and volunteers through their own Pursuit of Excellence. Some are multi-million dollar agencies with multiple layers of staff; others are one or two person shops who rely on volunteers for day to day operations. Our previous award recipients are as diverse as our state. Whether you are ready to apply or whether you just want more information on the Guiding Principles & Best Practices, consider attending these free online forums (Click on the following individual links to register):
