Excellence in Nonprofit Yearly Awards
In the spirit of generosity, the Cape Coral Community Foundation has introduced the Excellence in Nonprofit Performance Yearly Awards (ENPYs), a tradition that showcases the extraordinarily hardworking individuals in our community who dedicate their time and talent within the nonprofit sector.
The ENPYs showcases 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 makes within Southwest Florida and beyond.
