2012 Nonprofit PR Awards: Association/Nonprofit Team of the Year

Winner: United Nations Foundation

In 2011 the UN Foundation’s communications team exceeded its goals in media placement, public outreach and online audience numbers. In telling the UN’s story and sharing the message that everyone has a role to play in creating a better world, the team sold out its second annual Social Good Summit (in conjunction with Mashable), with 1,600 attendees and 120,000 people tuning in via Livestream. On the social media front, the team increased Facebook, Twitter and YouTube followers by 200% with innovative online events such as Facebook town halls and Twitterthons. —RD

Legacy: In supporting the Legacy Foundation’s mission to keep young people from smoking and help all smokers quit, in 2011, the six-member communications team continued to raise the needle about the issue of tobacco use by earning news coverage that generated 2.7 billion impressions for Legacy and its key campaigns.
