Drucker Institute Announces Call for Applications for Nonprofit Innovation Award

The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University has announced a call for applications for the 2011 Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation.

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

Applicants must be nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations.

Funded by a grant from the Coca-Cola Foundation, the first-place prize is $100,000. The second-place award is $7,500, and the third-place prize is $5,000. In addition, the winners of this year's competition will be invited to attend the Drucker Innovation Forum at Claremont later this fall. At this invitation-only event, participants will gather for a cross-sector conversation about strategies for making innovation systematic and effective within their organizations.
