This award recognizes associations dedicated to furthering a particular social cause or advocating for a shared point of view that have demonstrated a significant commitment to the environment through their actions.

“Thanks in large part to the Sustainability Action Plan, initiated by Goodwill and ATB Financial, Goodwill has been an innovator when it comes to waste reduction and environmental stewardship,” says Monaghan. “We are proud to make a positive impact in our community, all the while creating employment opportunities for Albertans with disabilities.”

Congratulations to all of the other organizations and nominees for this prestigious award, including our partners College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk and Moving, as their hard work continue to excel the nonprofit sector. Award winners exemplify creativity and innovation through new models of organizational effectiveness, collaboration, and program delivery. They increase impact and address systems-level gaps. They create an inspiring picture of the future and empower others to have a positive impact on the community. From well-known programs to a variety of smaller scale initiatives, there are many rich examples of innovative practices in Alberta’s nonprofit sector.
