The New York Foundling has been selected as a finalist for the 2015 New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Awards. The announcement was made by the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York (NPCC), which created and manages the nine-year-old Excellence Awards program.
A selection committee of 34 nonprofit management experts chose The Foundling as one of six finalists from a list of 10 semifinalists following an intensive application and vetting process that identifies excellent and replicable management practices among nonprofits in New York City, Long Island and Westchester. A total of 56 organizations applied for the 2015 Awards. Three winning organizations will be announced and honored at ceremony in November.
“We are honored to be among the six finalists for the Excellence Awards,” said Bethany Lampland, Chief Operating Officer at The Foundling. “Our commitment to effective and efficient management practices enables us to provide essential services and programs to 30,000 children and families each year.”
“The New York Community Trust is proud to honor nonprofit groups with outstanding management practices,” said Lorie Slutsky, President of The New York Community Trust, one of the region’s leading funders of nonprofits. “These six finalists offer examples of management excellence for the more than 40,000 nonprofits in New York City and its suburbs.”
The Excellence Awards program has attracted more than 685 applicants from across the city and its suburbs in its first nine years.
