For the 13th consecutive year, GRF is proud to sponsor the Excellence in Chief Executive Leadership (EXCEL) Award, hosted by the Center for Nonprofit Advancement. The award recognizes outstanding chief executives among the nonprofits in our region. The competition focuses on achievement in innovation, motivation, community building, ethical integrity, and strategic leadership.

The EXCEL Award not only honors exceptional leaders, but it also provides each winner and his/her organization’s staff with funding for continued professional development.

Nominations are now open. If you know an outstanding CEO or executive director of a nonprofit in our region, GRF encourages you to nominate him or her! Nominations can be made by board members, staff, volunteers, clients or community members, and can be submitted with or without the candidate’s knowledge.
