The Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires, in partnership with The Berkshire Eagle, will present the 5th Annual Berkshire Nonprofit Awards on Tuesday, May 24, 2022. The awards recognize people who work tirelessly in the nonprofit sector to serve the Berkshire community.


Nominations were solicited from across the Berkshires in seven categories through Monday, February 28, 2022: Executive Leadership, Board Leadership, Rock Star (formerly Super Staffer), Unsung Hero, Volunteer, Lifetime Achievement, and Samya Rose Stumo Youth Leadership.

On May 24, Representative William “Smitty” Pignatelli will serve as co-host for this 45-minute virtual event featuring a presentation to the honorees, entertainment by Music in Common, and a drawing for a $3,000 cash prize for one nonprofit in attendance.
