The Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofits is due this week (July 15, 2008):
The Drucker Institute would like to encourage all interested nonprofits to submit applications ASAP. The award, administered annually since 1991, is granted to a social sector organization that demonstrates Drucker's definition of innovation—change that creates a new dimension of performance. The winner will receive the $35,000 first prize, with $7,500 for second place and $5,000 for third place.

Widely considered the father of modern management, Peter Drucker not only consulted for major corporations, he advised the Girl Scouts of America, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army and countless other social-sector organizations. He called the nonprofit "America's most distinctive institution."
The past two winners of the Drucker Award include the "Made in NY" Production Assistant Training Program, which launches unemployed and low-income New Yorkers in careers in film and television production, and the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, which trains detained immigrants to navigate often unfamiliar and complex legal systems.
