For a third straight year, Communities Foundation of Texas is proud to partner with D CEO to honor professionals and organizations in the nonprofit world that continue to make a positive impact on the community, often under difficult financial constraints. We are also honoring the efforts of the corporations that support the local nonprofits, from executives volunteering their time on boards to lending support through financial donations, in-kind services, and sponsorships.

Bolstered by deep corporate support, Dallas-Fort Worth has one of the most powerful nonprofit communities in the nation. The two forces combine to strengthen the local economy and forge a brighter future.

The deadline to enter is April 17, 2020.
