The GoAbroad Annual Innovation Awards are quickly approaching and that means, it’s nomination time! The 2015 Innovation Awards are extra special for two reasons. First, it is GoAbroad’s 5th Annual Award Ceremony! And, secondly, the GoAbroad Foundation is sponsoring a brand new innovation award, Innovation in Philanthropy. After being awarded WYSTC’s Social Responsibility Award, we decided to continue a legacy of innovative social responsibility by creating our very own innovation award.
As stated on the Official GoAbroad Innovation Awards website:
This award recognizes philanthropic efforts that have impacted an individual or group, the global community, or a local community. Sponsored by the GoAbroad Foundation, the award seeks to honor organizations that demonstrate innovative corporate responsibility and philanthropy. We encourage submissions that profile significant charitable donations, corporate volunteer programs, unique philanthropic campaigns, or any event or program that demonstrates an organization’s philanthropic commitment(s). Nominations will be evaluated based on originality and the estimated impact on an individual or group, the global community, or a local community.
We are beyond thrilled to showcase organizations, groups, and individuals that are making an incredible impact on the world and we can’t wait to see the amazing projects and programs that get nominated.
UPDATE: Deadline extended to April 10th!
So time to Submit your Nomination! And don’t forget to do it soon, because Nominations close on Friday, April 3rd at 11:59pm MST.
