D CEO announces finalists for its 2018 Nonprofit and Corporate Citizenship Awards

D CEO has announced the finalists for its 2018 Nonprofit and Corporate Citizenship Awards, after receiving a record number of nominations.

The awards are honoring professionals and organizations in the nonprofit world that continue to make a positive impact on the community, often under difficult financial constraints, as well as the efforts of corporations that support local nonprofits, from executives volunteering their time on boards to lending support through financial donations and sponsorships. The awards recognize both equally important groups in the DFW community.

Of the more than 340 nominations submitted (the highest ever), 64 finalists were chosen by a group of D CEO editorial staff. The 64 finalists will be featured in D CEO’s August issue and recognized on Wednesday, Aug. 1, at an awards event where the winners in each category will be revealed.
