The Drucker Foundation Invites Applications For the Peter F. Drucker Award For Nonprofit Innovation and the Frances Hesselbein Community Innovation Fellows Program
NEW YORK, March 5, 2001 -- The Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management invites applications for the Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation and the Frances Hesselbein Community Innovation Fellows Program.
The Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation is given annually to a program that has made a difference in the lives of the people it serves and is accompanied by a prize of $25,000 and a video documentary about the winning project or program. The program should further the mission of the organization, have specific and measurable outcomes, and serve as a model that can be replicated or adapted by other organizations. The award recognizes a specific program, not an individual or organization. The nominated program must have begun no earlier than January 1, 1997, and only one entry per organization may be submitted. Entries must be postmarked by June 8, 2001.
The Frances Hesselbein Community Innovation Fellows Program recognizes the accomplishments and supports the professional development of social sector leaders who have a demonstrated record of leadership and entrepreneurial performance, and who are engaged in projects or programs that demonstrate community innovation. To be eligible, a candidate must be a chief executive or senior staff member of a nonprofit organization; have a minimum of ten years work experience; and be available to attend three scheduled gatherings of Fellows during the program year. Entries must be postmarked by May 4, 2001.
