Eide Bailly announces 2017 'Resourcefullness Award' winners

Top 100 firm Eide Bailly announced last week the winners of its 2017 "Nonprofit Resourcefullness Awards," which look to recognize "creative, sustainable, and impactful revenue-generating" nonprofits across Arizona, Colorado, Minnesota, and Utah.

“The Resourcefullness Award has once again introduced us to many creative initiatives that are making a positive impact in our communities,” stated Beth Bird, director of Eide Bailly’s nonprofit practice. “It’s our hope that the awards not only provide funds to outstanding nonprofits but also inspire other nonprofits to consider creative and sustainable streams of revenue.”

Since its creation in 2013, the awards have gone on to donate $285,000 to 57 different charity organizations. The application process also doubles as research on innovative ways in which nonprofit revenue is being collected today. The findings are then shared with other organizations.
