Annual Berkshire Nonprofit Awards Breakfast


*Tickets will be available on this page beginning in April.


The Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires, in partnership with The Berkshire Eagle, will present the 2nd Annual Berkshire Nonprofit Awards breakfast on Tuesday, May 21, from 8 to 10 a.m. at Berkshire Hills Country Club in Pittsfield. The award recognizes people who work tirelessly in the nonprofit sector to serve the Berkshire community.


In reflecting on the sold-out inaugural awards event last year, Liana Toscanini, founder of the Nonprofit Center, said, “It’s important to recognize people for their commitment and accomplishments, especially in our community which has the highest number of nonprofits per capita in the Commonwealth.”


Nominations are being solicited from across the Berkshires in seven categories: Executive Leadership, Board Member, Super Staffer, Unsung Hero, Volunteer, Rising Star and Lifetime Achievement. 19 honorees (One Lifetime Achievement honoree and 3 in each of the remaining categories) will be selected by a committee of business and nonprofit leaders. The nomination forms are available online here. The deadline for submissions is March 31.


The NPC is currently seeking sponsors for this celebratory event. For more information about sponsorship, click here. To date, major support comes from The Berkshire Eagle and Berkshire Bank. Bronze sponsors include Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, The Feigenbaum Foundation, Lee Bank, October Mountain Financial Advisors and Triplex Cinema.
