Community Building: Making a Difference
Community Partnership Award
The Mutual of America Community Partnership Award recognizes outstanding nonprofit organizations in the United States that have shown exemplary leadership by facilitating partnerships with public, private or social sector leaders who are working together as equal partners, not as donors and recipients, to build a cohesive community that serves as a model for collaborating with others for the greater good.
Each year, the Mutual of America Foundation sponsors a national competition in which hundreds of organizations demonstrate the value of their partnership to the communities they serve, their ability to be replicated by others and their capacity to stimulate new approaches to addressing significant social issues.
Five organizations are selected by an independent committee to receive the Community Partnership Award. One receives the Thomas J. Moran Award, which is given to the national award-winning program and includes $100,000 and a documentary video about the program. The remaining four are named Honorable Mention recipients, and each receives $50,000.
Since its inception in 1996, the Community Partnership Award has recognized 250 partnerships from cities and towns across America. Like so many of our clients working in the nonprofit community, Mutual of America is dedicated to having a direct, positive impact on society.
