The Inaugural New York City Imagine Awards, the premier event that shines the spotlight on the nonprofit sector, was held on Tuesday, October 19, 2021 at the Edison Ballroom. We are extremely excited to bring the Imagine Awards to New York City and its surrounding boroughs. This event has been a mainstay of the Long Island nonprofit sector for the last nine years, so to be able to introduce this to the New York City marketplace is amazing. We will continue to make this an annual event in NYC!
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 are eligible to apply across five categories, Arts & Culture; Innovation; Leadership Excellence; Rising Star; & Social Impact, with the winner in each category winning a $5,000 grant. In addition, the 20 finalists, 4 in each category, will each receive a professionally produced video, which will be showcased the night of the event.
