Scenes from D CEO’s 2021 Nonprofit and Corporate Citizenship Awards Celebration

In a year that called for extraordinary service, the program received more than 500 nominations.

More than 550 guests gathered in late July to celebrate the fourth annual Nonprofit and Corporate Citizenship Awards, presented in partnership with Communities Foundation of Texas. The festive evening, held at the Frontiers of Flight Museum, brought together the outstanding leaders, organizations, and corporate citizens who are working tirelessly to make Dallas even better.

In a year that called for extraordinary service, the program received more than 500 nominations – a record-breaking number for any D CEO Awards program. After several judging sessions by the editors, a total of 112 finalists were named (81 nonprofit organizations and leaders and 31 corporate citizens).

The intersection between nonprofits and area businesses is powerful, and true engagement was the common thread between the evening’s corporate citizenship winners. Nonprofit honorees demonstrated resiliency and fortitude—responding quickly to increased demand and having a real impact on the communities they serve.

A huge thank you to title sponsors Amazon, Capital One, and Texas Mutual for their help in making this incredible event possible.
