Crain’s Best Managed Nonprofit Contest this year will focus on what Southeastern Michigan nonprofits are doing to develop the next generation of leaders in their organizations in the face of high turnover the past few years and increased competition for talent at all levels.

This could include efforts aimed at board development and/or succession planning at the executive level or efforts in specialized programmatic areas or other high-demand areas such as development.

Applications are due Tuesday, August 13. Finalists must appear for in-person interviews with judges the morning of Tuesday, October 29.

Applicants for the award must be a 501(c)(3) with headquarters in Wayne, Washtenaw, Oakland, Macomb or Livingston counties. Applications must include an entry form, a copy of the organization’s code of ethics, a copy of its most recent audited financial statement and a copy of its most recent IRS 990 form.

First-place winners within the past 10 years are not eligible; neither are hospitals, HMOs, medical clinics, business and professional organizations, schools, churches or foundations.

The winners will be profiled in the December 2 issue, receive a “Best-Managed” logo from Crain’s for use in promotional material and will be recognized at Crain’s Newsmaker of the Year luncheon early next year.
