Calgary and Area nonprofits do incredible work! This year’s nonprofit innovation awards saw a record number of applicants and showcased an impressive array of initiatives. We heard stories of innovation that impact children, youth, families, and seniors. Nonprofits told us about their innovations in the areas of technology, accessibility, partnerships, programming, policy, fundraising, and communication. And this year we saw that innovation knows no bounds, with bold ideas coming from education, arts, recreation, human services, international development, environment, and health sectors, among others.
Most notably, we were inspired to see nonprofits embrace risk to improve life for others.
So to those in the local nonprofit sector, give yourselves a pat on the back and be proud of all you do to help make our city great. And to all of you, take a moment to thank your friends and neighbours who work or volunteer for a charitable cause. As the stories presented here show, there is much to celebrate when people embrace risk and pursue new opportunities in times of change and challenge.
