International Folk Art Market Santa Fe wins 2013 Nonprofit of the Year award in the Arts, Culture and Humanities category from Albuquerque Business First

On May 23, 2013, the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market received the Nonprofit of the Year award in the Arts, Culture and Humanities category from Albuquerque Business First.

Albuquerque Business First recognized 24 nonprofit organizations for their contributions to the community in its inaugural Nonprofit of the Year awards, with organizations selected in seven categories: arts, culture and humanities; crisis resources; education; environment and animals; family services; health and human services; and public and societal benefit.

Albuquerque Business First asked the public to nominate their favorite organizations for the Nonprofit of the Year awards, receiving close to 400 nominations. Nominated organizations were asked to submit an application detailing their work and sharing testimonials from those who have benefited from their services.

The applicants were evaluated by a group of leaders in the business community who have extensive knowledge of New Mexico’s philanthropic sector through board service and other work. Judges evaluated the nonprofit organizations on their mission, impact, innovation and the sustainability of the organization (its ability to continue providing services into the future).

Albuquerque Business First profiled the honorees in a special report in its May 24 print edition.
