New York, NY (PRWEB) August 09, 2015
New York Common Pantry (NYCP) has been chosen as a semifinalist for the 2015 New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Awards. NYCP is in the running to win a cash award, scholarships for the Columbia Business School Executive Education Programs in Social Enterprise, and the renown that comes along with being recognized by The Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, which created and manages the Awards program.
The selection committee chose NYCP along with nine other semifinalists, out of a pool of 56 applicants, following an intensive application and vetting process that identifies excellent and replicable management practices among nonprofits in the five boroughs, Long Island, and Westchester. After another application round complete with a site visit, The New York Community Trust will choose three winning organizations to announce at the Awards presentation in November 2015.
Stephen Grimaldi, Executive Director of New York Common Pantry, said, “We're thrilled to be included as a semi-finalist for this highly sought-after award, and we're gratified that our efforts to improve and strengthen our management in order to better serve New Yorkers in need are being recognized in this way.”
The Nonprofit Excellence Awards recognize outstanding management practices in eight key performance areas identified by thousands of nonprofit leaders across the country. The eight areas of excellence are: management focus on results; strong governance; excellent financial management; diverse and culturally competent organizational practices; enlightened human resources; model IT practices; effective communications; and, exemplary fundraising and resource development.
