Nonprofit Awareness Day A Celebration of Nonprofit Excellence
Jun 4 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm


Every year, hundreds of nonprofit and business leaders gather the State House to celebrate Nonprofit Awareness Day: A Celebration of Nonprofit Excellence, a statewide holiday signed into law by Governor Deval Patrick 10 years ago. This celebration is hosted by the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network and presented by Citizens Bank. We look forward to celebrating the impact of nonprofits and those who demonstrate excellence this year on June 4, 2018!

During Nonprofit Awareness Day, Nonprofit Excellence Awards will be presented to organizations and professionals exemplifying the innovative and effective work of nonprofits across Massachusetts. Nominations are being reviewed and winners selected by an independent panel of nonprofit and business leaders. Last year, MNN received over 125 Nonprofit Excellence Award nominations. Stay tuned for updates about this year’s Finalists.

Join our annual social media movement leading up to Nonprofit Awareness Day where we will use stories, images, and stats to tell our neighbors, elected officials, and funders how Massachusetts’ nonprofits are #MAkingadifference. The social media campaign will begin in May. Click here to sign up for campaign reminders, tips, tricks, and sample language to help you engage in the campaign.
