Innovation Awards

Disruptive. Adaptive. Creative.

You brought an idea to life. You chose to adapt and work differently for greater community impact. You moved beyond the status quo into uncharted territory. Perhaps your nonprofit accomplished more in a partnership than it could have alone. You shifted direction, not knowing how things would turn out. You’re proud of what your organization did, and you learned so much along the way—with vision and passion steering you through the ups and downs of the risk you took.

Now it’s your turn to inspire others by entering your story in the 2017 Calgary Nonprofit Innovation Awards. These annual awards showcase nonprofits that have stepped out of their comfort zones to make a difference. Winners will receive $2,500 and have their story shared with others across the sector.


Any nonprofit operating in Calgary and Area may apply.
