The 3rd Annual New York City Imagine Awards, the premier event that shines the spotlight on the nonprofit sector, was held on Tuesday, October 17, 2023 at Guastavino’s. This gala event was created to offer formal acknowledgment to some of the City’s most effective and innovative nonprofit organizations. 501(c)(3) nonprofits located in and/or significantly serving The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens or Staten Island were eligible to apply across six categories: *NEW* DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and/or Accessibility); Arts & Culture; Innovation; Leadership Excellence; Rising Star; & Social Impact, with the winner in each category winning a $5,000 grant. In addition, the 24 finalists, 4 in each category, each received a professionally produced video, which was showcased the night of the event, and thanks to Webster Bank's Diamond Sponsorship finalists were awarded with $1,000 as well.
