Southwest Missouri Nonprofit Excellence Awards

Join us in celebrating nonprofit excellence! 

Nonprofit organizations perform some of the most important work in our community, from educating children and housing the homeless, to feeding and caring for vulnerable populations.

Yet much of the work done by the men and women in these organizations is behind the scenes, and is often a thankless task.

The Southwest Missouri Nonprofit Excellence Awards is a way to honor the passionate individuals who play an important role in improving our communities.

Awards Ceremony

The first annual Southwest Missouri Nonprofit Excellence Awards ceremony is Thursday, March 1, 2018, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Oasis Inn in Springfield, Missouri.

More than $10,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded!

Winners in each category will receive recognition and a cash award. The top awards—Nonprofit Organization of the Year—will receive at least $1,000 each.

Award winners will be announced at the ceremony.
