Times like this remind us of nonprofits’ important work in our communities.

With thousands displaced by the horrific fires, food banks and other nonprofits sprang into action.

Here, you will read about 17 executives, board members, organizations and volunteers whose achievements are being recognized by our fifth annual Nonprofit Leadership Awards.

The honorees include a doctor who performs free medical procedures for those who cannot afford them, leader of one of the region’s leading community foundations and a teen that founded a nonprofit devoted to teaching your people about health food choices.

We know you will be as inspired as we were when we read about these incredible people and organizations.

Congratulations to all.
