On September 24th the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence was presented with the Corporate Fund Nonprofit Management Award. For more than 25 years, The Corporate Fund has presented the award annually to those organizations demonstrating exemplary nonprofit management practices. The announcement came at the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits Leadership Summit. The Coalition is honored to be the only nonprofit recognized with this coveted award this year. The selection followed a rigorous application process and interview.

In presenting the award Byron Champlin, assistant vice president and program officer with Lincoln Financial Group and chair of The Corporate Fund panel said, "The New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence was selected because they have ensured that New Hampshire has among the most progressive domestic and sexual violence laws in the country. They have a national reputation for developing and implementing effective and innovative strategies for addressing domestic violence and sexual assault."

The Corporate Fund created this award to recognize outstanding management skill and talent within the nonprofit sector, and named it for Walter J. Dunfey, noted businessman, philanthropist and co-founder of The Corporate Fund. He recognized that management in the nonprofit sector is among the most demanding and most important work in our society. The Coalition’s application focused on the collaborative work between the Coalition and its member programs as well as the strategic and succession planning undertaken by the staff and board of directors.

An excerpt from the application states:
“The excellent reputation of the Coalition both among New Hampshire nonprofits and government leaders, and national domestic and sexual violence organizations, stems from an adherence to clearly stated values of ethical communication and non-competition among member programs and a commitment to keep the voices of survivors as central determiners of our programs and activities. The commitment to ethical communication and consensus decision-making, honoring all voices in determining the goals and priorities of the Coalition, is clearly articulated in policy documents that all member programs sign. Competition for funding is kept to a minimum through a funding formula for distribution of government funds and through open sharing among member programs and the Coalition office of grant funds that are available and being pursued.”
As a winner of this award the Coalition will receive an unrestricted award of $3,500.
