CFN Announced as Finalist for Alberta Nonprofit Innovation Awards

CFN is honoured to be amongst the top ten finalists for The Alberta Nonprofit Innovation Awards.  The Alberta Nonprofit Innovation Awards celebrate nonprofit professionals and organizations across Alberta who have challenged the status quo and inspired others with creative and disruptive solutions to address enduring community challenges.

Award winners exemplify creativity and innovation through new models of organizational effectiveness, collaboration, and program delivery. They increase impact and address systems-level gaps. They create an inspiring picture of the future and empower others to have a positive impact on the community. From well-known programs to a variety of smaller scale initiatives, there are many rich examples of innovative practices in Alberta’s nonprofit sector.

Since 2011, the Nonprofit Innovation Awards have been a catalyst to help encourage and celebrate innovation among nonprofit organizations in Calgary, and an opportunity to highlight stories of adaptive and inspirational practices in the city. In 2019, the Awards were reimagined as a unique celebration of nonprofit professionals and organizations across Alberta, and renamed the Alberta Nonprofit Innovation Awards.

Nominations for the 2019 Innovation Awards are now closed and the finalists include Aspen, Cups, Fresh Routes, Give a Mile, Goodwill, Immigrant Services Calgary, Indefinite Arts Centre, Land Stewardship Centre, The Brenda Strafford Centre, Discovery House, Sonshine Community Services and of course the Centre for Newcomers.

We offer our heartfelt congratulations to our fellow nominees and we look forward to celebrating with you at the awards evening on October 3, 2019 at Odd Fellows Hall. Click here to RSVP today!
