The Triangle Nonprofit & Volunteer Leadership Center
Each year, The Center coordinates the Governor’s Volunteer Service Award in conjunction with our Key Volunteer of the Year.
Nominations open in the fall and all Triangle nonprofits submit their outstanding volunteers in several categories. An awards ceremony to recognize these volunteers is held each spring.
The Center coordinates this program for the Governor’s office for Durham, Orange, and Wake counties. County winners are selected and submitted to the Governor’s office, where they are considered for the State’s highest volunteer recognition, the Medallion Award, which is given to the top 20 volunteers in the state.
-Multiple nominations are allowed
-Only one nominee in each Special Volunteer TYPE strongly encouraged so your volunteers are not competing against each other within that category
(Example nominate one Youth, one Senior, one Group/Team, etc.)
-Consider also nominating your corporate volunteers. This is a terrific way to not only recognize them, but it builds a stronger relationship that can also result in increased volunteers and even financial support
-The Narrative statement is very important! Please be specific and detailed about your volunteer’s impact to your organization
-TNVLC can assist in helping you develop your nomination if needed – just contact us!
