The Charitable Foundation is partnering with Business New Hampshire Magazine to celebrate excellence in New Hampshire nonprofit management.
Since 1998, the Foundation has honored excellence in nonprofit management by making an annual award to a New Hampshire nonprofit in tribute to Walter J. Dunfey — a celebrated New Hampshire entrepreneur and philanthropist whose leadership galvanized support to strengthen the state’s nonprofit sector.
Now, that award is being made in conjunction with Business New Hampshire Magazine’s Business of the Year Awards, which includes an honoree in the nonprofit category. The selected nonprofit — which will be chosen by a committee that includes Foundation grantmaking staff — will receive a $5,000 unrestricted grant from the Foundation.
Deadline for applications is January 11, 2019. Applications can be made online here.
