ACN LGBTQ+ Award for Nonprofits
The Association of Consultants to Nonprofits’ LGBTQ+ EMPOWER Group, along with its ACN allies, recently launched a first-of-its-kind initiative to support a nonprofit organization that works with or directly impacts members of the LGBTQ+ community, the LGBTQ+ EMPOWERment Award: Supporting Programs for Our Community.
The Association received submissions from across the country from innovative LGBTQ+ organizations. After narrowing down a highly competitive field of applicants from across the country, four finalists were invited to a virtual business pitch session to present their projects to a panel of consultants who work with nonprofit organizations.
After a careful selection, the judges selected the Supply Hive as the finalist who would be receiving the financial award and six pro bono consulting sessions. The other finalists, the National Queer Theater, Equality Chamber, and Affinity Community Services, will each receive consulting support from ACN volunteers.
In addition to the financial award and pro-bono consulting services, the finalists had the opportunity to network with each other and share connections to help each one advance its mission. It was amazing to see the camaraderie in action!
Congratulations to these outstanding organizations. We look forward to supporting their growth and success. You can learn more about each organization by clicking on their logos:
