Drucker Institute Seeks Applications for Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation

The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University has announced a call for applications for the 2009 Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation.

Administered annually since 1991, the Drucker Award is granted to a social-sector organization that demonstrates Peter F. Drucker's definition of innovation — change that creates a new dimension of performance. In addition, the judges look for programs that are highly effective and have made a difference in the lives of the people they serve.

Applicant organizations must have nonprofit 501(c)(3) status. The program submitted for consideration must have made a difference in the lives of people it serves, exemplify innovation by demonstrating a new dimension of performance, and have specific and measurable outcomes.

With support from the Coca-Cola Foundation, this year's first-place prize has been increased to $100,000, up from the $35,000 awarded in previous years. The second-place prize is $7,500, and the third-place prize is $5,000. The winners of this year's competition will also be recognized at a gala dinner in Los Angeles in the fall, preceded by a one-day conference on innovation in the social sector.

Complete program information and application are available at the Drucker Institute Web site.
