After four long judging sessions, wading through nearly 400 nomination forms, and spirited discussions among D CEO editors, we have named finalists in our 2019 Nonprofit and Corporate Citizenship Awards program, presented in partnership with the Communities Foundation of Texas. The North Texas nonprofit and philanthropic scene is one of the broadest, deepest, and most active in the country. With so many worthy contenders, selecting the finalists was no easy task.
We are proud to honor professionals and organizations in the nonprofit world that continue to make a positive impact on the community, often under difficult financial constraints. We also recognize the efforts of the corporations that support the local organizations, from executives lending their leadership expertise to providing support through financial donations, in-kind services, and sponsorships.
All finalists will be featured in D CEO’s August issue and recognized at an awards event on Thursday, Aug. 1, where the winners in each category will be revealed. Congratulations to all!
