Awards to Nova Scotia individuals and nonprofit organizations to recognize outstanding commitment to their communities. Individuals will receive most of the awards, and inclusiveness and diversity will be key selection criteria. Award recipients must use their award for professional and personal development that will enable them to continue their important work. This year’s awards will recognize both outstanding year-round efforts in the community as well as responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Invisible Champion Awards recognize the extraordinary people and nonprofit organizations making a difference in the community. United Way Halifax is proud to celebrate the unsung heroes in the nonprofit sector working tirelessly to create possibility and make change in Nova Scotia.
These awards are to be used by the recipients to better equip them to do their important work. The awards are designed to recognize creativity, diversity, inclusivity, dedication, team building, leadership, community partnership, and sector sustainability. These are the qualities demonstrated by the sector’s invisible champions — both individuals and organizations — during one of the most challenging and critical years for the nonprofit sector (including challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic). For information on assessment criteria, see the Nomination Guide:
