Berkshire Nonprofit Awards
Name: Berkshire Nonprofit Awards
Date: May 24, 2022
Time: 8:30 AM - 9:15 AM EDT
The Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires, in partnership with The Berkshire Eagle, will host the 5th annual Berkshire Nonprofit Awards on Tuesday, May 24 at 8:30 am. The awards recognize the wonderful work being done by individuals in the nonprofit sector. Representative William “Smitty” Pignatelli will co-host the 45-minute virtual event. “The Pandemic certainly brought awareness to our amazing nonprofit support system,” says NPC founder Liana Toscanini. “It is nice to shine a light on nonprofit people who sometimes fly under the radar.” Nominations are being solicited from across the Berkshires in seven categories: Executive Leadership, Board Leadership, Rock Star, Unsung Hero, Volunteer, Youth Leadership and Lifetime Achievement. One honoree in each category will be chosen by a panel of judges and profiled in a special section in The Berkshire Eagle. Nominations are due February 28. As part of the 2022 awards event, NPC will again give away a $3,000 cash prize to one nonprofit chosen at random from those in attendance. Music in Common will also return with a performance from its newest program, The Black Legacy Project. The NPC is currently seeking sponsors for this celebratory event.
