Award Selection Committee

The Center for Nonprofit Advancement manages three prestigious awards: the Award for Excellence in Nonprofit Management, the EXCEL Award and the Board Leadership Award. All nonprofits in the greater Washington-area and in the Commonwealth of Virginia are eligible for these awards.

Each winner is selected by a volunteer panel of up to 25 executives, all of whom bring a wide range of expertise to the table. The Center strives to build selection committees with a variety of focus ranging from communications to finance to leadership. The diverse panel and competitive review process is a major reason many nonprofits apply.We are always looking for new faces and fresh ideas on our selection committees. If you would like to join a committee, first learn a bit more about each of our awards:

The Award for Excellence in Nonprofit Management is an annual award presented to a nonprofit that demonstrates outstanding organizational management.

The Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman EXCEL Award recognizes and spotlights outstanding leadership among Washington-area nonprofit chief executives.

The Board Leadership Award was developed with support from area experts to recognize and spotlight outstanding leadership from Boards of Directors of Washington-area nonprofit organizations.
