Net Impact NYC has partnered with StayClassy, a San Diego-Based social
fundraising platform that offers fundraising and communications tools
to nonprofits, in helping judge the New York City Classy Awards.
The CLASSY Awards is an awards competition recognizing the top
philanthropic achievements by charities, businesses, and individuals
in eight major cities nationwide: Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los
Angeles, New York City, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.
Here’s more info on the judging process:
Beginning August 1, America was invited to nominate praiseworthy
charities, business and individuals for ten (10) awards categories.
Based on those nominations, a panel of judges in each city
determined the nominees who have the most compelling stories, the most
“out of the box” ideas and have made the greatest impact on their
communities. The top five (5) nominees in each category, in each city
were then deemed City Finalists and can now be voted on by the public.
The City Finalists with the most online votes in each category will be
crowned the City Award Winners, and automatically entered into online
voting for a National CLASSY Award.
The competition will culminate at a red-carpet awards ceremony on
Sunday, November 7 in Downtown San Diego, CA featuring a host of
celebrity presenters, chart-topping music talent, nonprofit industry
leaders, social media gurus, and hundreds (if not thousands) of CLASSY
Awards supporters, as well as satellite viewing parties in the
participating cities. More than $100,000 in the form of cash and
in-kind services will be donated to support the charitable efforts of
the ten (10) National CLASSY Awards Winners.
Net Impact NYC members are encouraged to vote now.
