We’re thrilled to launch the second year of #SupportingOurSector today – a nonprofit prize competition that is funded by the business community and decided by the public (you!) through popular vote. This year, the giving pool has grown to $70,000 in combined cash and custom pro bono services packages, all of which is provided by the local business community (check out our Partners below).
As a refresher, we designed this initiative to bring the business community together in a way that was easy for them, while also empowering our community to guide funds to the nonprofits that matter to them using the power of social media. And thus was born #SupportingOurSector!
How does it work? Simply nominate a nonprofit (or two or three) during the nomination period, which runs from today through Friday, 10/6. The nonprofits with the five most unique nominations move into the final vote off, which is again, won by popular vote. The final winning nonprofit will win more than $20,000 in cash and a custom pro bono services package valued at more than $30,000. Plus we’ll have a Judges Pick this year and a few other prizes to share! Nominations this year will be open only to nonprofits based in, working out of, or founded in Los Angeles to keep this initiative community focused.
