DMANF Calls for Nominations for Nonprofit Organization of the Year; Nominations Close June 2
May 25, 2006 — Each year, the Direct Marketing Association Nonprofit Federation (DMANF) recognizes an outstanding nonprofit with its Organization of the Year Award. The deadline for this year’s nominations is Friday, June 2, 2006.
The DMANF’s award recognizes a nonprofit organization that:
· Exemplifies the highest level of excellence in the pursuit of its mission.
· Consistently demonstrates leadership and maintains a solid reputation in the nonprofit and direct marketing communities, and with the general public.
· Has an outstanding record of achievement and successful financial performance during the previous 12-months or longer.
· Meets the high ethical standards of the nonprofit community, and complies with generally accepted standards for management and public disclosure.
While preference is given to organizations that demonstrate long-term success using direct marketing techniques, an organization need not be a member of the DMANF to apply. Previous recipients include CARE, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
"With only limited resources, nonprofit organizations are often called upon to fulfill tremendous societal needs. Many groups rely on direct marketing techniques to raise funds, seek volunteers and educate the public about important issues," said DMANF Executive Director Senny Boone. "We are honored to play a part in recognizing the important work these groups are doing every day in communities across America and around the world."
The award will be presented at a luncheon on August 9 during The DMA Nonprofit Federation's New York Nonprofit Conference. More information about the conference and award applications are available online at www.nonprofitfederation.org.
