Excellence in Nonprofit Yearly Awards
In the spirit of generosity, the Cape Coral Community Foundation is introducing the Excellence in Nonprofit Performance Yearly Awards (ENPYs), a brand-new tradition—one that will showcase the extraordinarily hardworking individuals in our community who dedicate their time and talent within the nonprofit sector.
The ENPYs will showcase excellence in nonprofit performance by recognizing the very best executive directors, key staff, board members, volunteers and much more. We’ve created an event to celebrate your efforts and revel in the incredible impact each of you make within Southwest Florida and beyond.
