Support Kansas City Celebrates 2013 Nonprofit Award Winners

Mission, KS - Support Kansas City, a local nonprofit providing business and development support services to other nonprofits, celebrated the winners of the 2013 Excellence in Nonprofit Leadership Award on April 17, 2013. Over 100 guests attended the panel discussion, and awards reception to honor Alphapointe, who won the award for an agency with a budget of more than $1 million, Community Assistance Council who received the award for an agency with a budget of $1 million or less, and the Kansas City Rose Society who received a special recognition award as an all-volunteer organization.

These awards are distinctive because they honor these agencies for their strong fiscal management and sound strategic focus. “Over the last four years we’ve seen the response to these awards grow. I think it reflects the commitment to excellence by nonprofit staff and boards in our community. As the nonprofit sector has responded to the changing economic climate, we’ve seen how strong leadership has helped agencies better manage change and continue to serve the growing needs in our community.” said Debra Box, Executive Director of Support Kansas City.

Awards were presented following the Nonprofit Leadership, Beyond the New Norm, panel discussion which was moderated by Steve Roling, CEO of the Healthcare Foundation of Greater Kansas City, with panelists Julie Donelon, MOCSA; Ralph Reid, Sprint Foundation; Dave Renz, Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership; and David Warm, MARC. Topics discussed included nonprofit collaboration, strengths in leadership, the business facets of leading a nonprofit, and employee engagement, concluding with a lively question and answer segment from the audience.

Support Kansas City is based in Mission, Kansas, and provides nonprofit organizations in Kansas and Missouri with business and development expertise, empowering them to focus on their missions.
