The Green Bay Packers currently are accepting nominations for the Community Quarterback Award.
Funded by the Green Bay Packers and NFL Charities, the Community Quarterback Award recognizes outstanding volunteers within the state of Wisconsin. Non-profit (501(c)(3) or 509) organizations are invited to nominate outstanding volunteers who demonstrate leadership, dedication and a commitment to bettering their communities through volunteerism.
In addition, a Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) is required to begin the nomination form, and to eliminate nomination forms from organizations other than those deemed (501(c)(3) or 509).
The Community Quarterback Award is for volunteers who are not compensated for their services and have served a minimum of one year with their organization. Two recipients will be selected in each of the following categories: Volunteer Leadership (board member), Youth (age 13 through age 17), Adult (age 18 to 65), Senior (over the age of 65), and Small Group (5 or fewer volunteers). Each recipient will be awarded a $2,000 grant in the name of the nominating non-profit organization.
The deadline for nomination submission is Monday, Nov. 7, 2011. The nomination process is available online through the following link:
