Honoring Outstanding Nonprofits and their Leaders

The Community Partners Leadership Award (CPLA) was established in 2015 to recognize and honor New York nonprofits that demonstrate excellence in management and governance.  Awards are granted based on a review of mission-driven impact and effective use of best practices.

In 2019, Gay Men’s Health Crisis, Inc. (GMHC) received the top honor of Gold and a $25,000 donation to support its mission. Music & Memory received Silver and $10,000 and Graham Windham was awarded Bronze and $5,000.

Applications and award criteria for CPLA are announced typically on a biennial basis.  For information, please contact Cori Floyd (cfloyd@hbscny.org)
