Amazon.com is currently working with Stanford Business School’s Center for Social Innovation to review submissions for the Amazon.com Nonprofit Innovation Award. The award recognizes and rewards nonprofit organizations whose innovative approaches most effectively improve their communities or the world at large.
Ten organizations selected as finalists will have a unique opportunity to raise funds and awareness for their programs on Amazon.com. All 10 finalists will be profiled on their own Amazon.com pages, where customers will be invited to vote for their favorites by making monetary donations. The organization that receives the largest amount of customer contributions by the deadline will receive the award, along with a matching grant of up to $1 million from Amazon.com.
Finalists will be announced on 19 July 2005.
