Center Events

Nonprofit Impact Celebration

Please join us as we come together to recognize the work of those who—through employment, board service, volunteering or other support—commit to the common good of NH communities.

This event will recognize the more than 700 members of the Center and its many partners and supporters. The event will also include networking opportunities, hors d'oeuvre and presentation of the Nonprofit Impact Awards. It’s a perfect opportunity to bring board and staff members and share with them the powerful feeling of the sector coming together.

Please join with your colleagues and partners to celebrate this special night and the sector’s strong leadership role in charting NH’s future.

Recognize the accomplishments of others by nominating them for a Nonprofit Impact Award

The Nonprofit Impact Awards will be presented to remarkable individuals and nonprofits that have made outstanding contributions to their communities. The emphasis of the awards will be to recognize those who push us to work more broadly, to innovate, and to expand our ways of meeting the needs of our state. The four award categories are:

New Hampshire Impact Award
This award honors an exceptional individual for contributions to nonprofits in New Hampshire, whose service and ability to work across traditional boundaries has advanced community and social causes.

Board Impact Award
This award honors an individual who has served New Hampshire through exemplary nonprofit board service and overall leadership.

Nonprofit Impact Award
This award recognizes a nonprofit whose performance and exceptional service to the community sets a high standard of quality and demonstrates effective strategy, execution, and impact.

Healthy Community Impact Award
The Healthy Community Impact Award, presented by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, recognizes a nonprofit working to increase access to care and improve the wellbeing of individuals and communities to build a stronger, more vibrant state.
