It was a delightful shock and honor to receive the OneGroup Innovation Award at the NYC Imagine Awards in 2023. As a small and young nonprofit, it means the world to share a stage and break bread with so many inspiring organizations with leaders who have welcomed us so generously. Even before the ceremony, the process was already more than worth it: answering thoughtful questions about our work, collaborating with the awesome video team, and getting to learn about the other nonprofits in the Imagine Awards network was hugely meaningful for all of us at Hear Your Song. We are so grateful for this tremendous recognition and opportunity and for the warm community from which they stem.
