Fwd: Calling All Pittsburgh Nonprofits! 2024 Community Partnership Awards Apply Today!

Dear Pittsburgh Friends,

           Does your nonprofit have a program, built through partnerships, that drives positive change?

If so, then we encourage you to apply for the 2024 Mutual of America Foundation Community Partnership Award Competition.

Applications are due July 1, 2024.

The Community Partnership Award Competition is how Mutual of America supports organizations making positive contributions to communities across America through meaningful partnerships. Since 1996, Mutual of America has honored over 250 outstanding partnerships fostered by nonprofits that all demonstrated incredible and innovative contributions to their communities.

The Frances Hesselbein Leadership Forum has worked with the Mutual of America Foundation to evaluate applicants for this achievement award. An independent committee selects six winning organizations. The Thomas J. Moran Award is given to the national award-winning program and includes $100,000 and a documentary about the program. Four organizations are named Honorable Mention recipients for their program, and each receives $50,000.

We would also like to take this opportunity to offer our heartiest congratulations to Auberle, who was recognized as one of the four Honorable Mentioned $50,000 award recipients. Auberle's recognition is for their Employment Institute partnership with Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC which placed and supported more than 90 clients into career positions in the hospital in the last two years, changing the trajectory of both UPMC Magee's workforce and the lives of the individuals in the program. Learn more about the partnership here:

In honor of Frances Hesselbein's lifetime of dedicated community-based work and longstanding involvement with the Community Partnership Award competition, Mutual of America recently established the Frances R. Hesselbein Award. The award gives $75,000 to a partnership that is addressing social challenges in more than one community or that demonstrates the potential to be replicated in other communities.

Visit the official YouTube channel for the Mutual of America Foundation Community Partnership Award to watch videos of each of the national award-winning programs.
