Nonprofit CFO Awards
Each year the CFO Awards recognize the often unsung leadership role CFOs have in the important works nonprofits do, working generally behind the scene as a key supporter of the executive director, to keep the organization moving forward.
- CFO of Year — awarded to an outstanding CFO, currently making a vital contribution to the leadership of a well-recognized nonprofit, as right hand of the executive director and mentor of the team – someone who has impact on the performance of the whole organization and whose stature enables them to serve as an example of all that is best in the nonprofit world.
- Rising Star — awarded to an outstanding CFO of a nonprofit 40 or under who has come to play a major leadership role, supporting the executive director, with significant initiatives in the development of their nonprofit.
- Transformational Leader — awarded to an outstanding CFO of a nonprofit who has played a major role in the transformation of the operations of their nonprofit- not only in the financial department but also in broader operational areas, such as pioneering a significant major program, developing and implementing a technological breakthrough, or engineering a reorganization or merger.
Nominations are accepted year round but all nominations for 2017 honorees must be submitted by August 1, 2017. Nominations are encouraged from Board Members, colleagues and suppliers.
