    Donner Awards

    Recognizing & rewarding excellence

    “It is extremely important to us to achieve excellence in all we do and we are proud to be acknowledged in this pursuit by an objective third party.” - Brenda Thorlakson, Executive Director, Vernon and District Hospice Society (Vernon, BC)

    The Donner Canadian Foundation Awards for Excellence in the Delivery of Social Services encourage the spirit of initiative and independence and represent an important step forward in the development of an objective, quantifiable system of measuring non-profit performance.

    The annual $60,000 in awards makes the Donner Awards Canada’s largest non-profit recognition program. Awards worth $5,000 each are presented to Canada’s top non-profit organization in each of seven categories of social service.

    Of these seven award recipients, one organization is granted the prestigious William H. Donner Award for Excellence in the Delivery of Social Services, valued at $20,000. In addition, the Peter F. Drucker Award for Non-Profit Management, valued at $5,000, is presented to a non-profit organization with a consistent record of excellence and innovation in management and service delivery.
