NonProfit PR Awards Issue

Year over year, the finalists for PR News’ NonProfit PR Awards raise the bar for doing well by doing good, and 2009 was no exception. This year’s finalists, which represent industries and interests as diverse as organ/tissue donations, influenza preparedness and hunger prevention, overcame economic, social and political barriers to deliver results that exceeded even the loftiest of expectations. The Nonprofit Award winners and honorable mentions, profiled in the following pages, were also honored at a special awards luncheon at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on November 3. The communications professionals behind each and every one of these campaigns once again prove that the power of PR can transcend the most challenging limitations to help communities around the world.
