BEA Gala – Non-Profit/Charitable Award

2019 Business Excellence Awards

Non-Profit/Charitable Award

Sponsored by MTE

There are three components that help build a healthy society where people can flourish: governance, economy, and civil society. The goal is to have three components intersect with one another seamlessly. The Non-Profit/Charitable Award seeks to acknowledge the incredible contributions of civil society – non-profit and charitable organizations provide the necessary awareness, education, and services that the public sector cannot fulfill.

Awarded to an outstanding non-profit/charitable organization that has achieved excellence through any or all of:

  • Demonstrated innovative and proactive leadership within the organization or non-profit sector
  • Implemented initiatives that have resulted in significant and measurable outcomes benefiting the overall services of the organization
  • Developed the skills, knowledge and performance of its organization and volunteers
  • Been in operation for a minimum of two full years

In 2018, the Business & Education Partnership of Waterloo Region received the award. They strive to connect youth with employers, educators and community partners to promote success and prosperity through engaging programming. With programs like ZOOM Career Days, Challenge Day, Pitch Day, and many more, the BEP of Waterloo Region is having a significant impact on both youth and parents as they take their next steps towards their careers. We are lucky to have such a great organization in our community.
