Heart of Marin Awards & Heart of Napa Awards

Where volunteers, nonprofits and leadership comes together.

Nonprofit Recognition

Every day, passionate individuals dedicate their work to advancing our communities. CVNL hosts two signature community events to raise money and awareness for these influential leaders: Heart of Marin & Heart of Napa Awards Ceremony and Luncheon.

Our nonprofit recognition events raise community awareness by telling the story of nonprofits, their constituents, and the impact individuals can effect. The events are a platform that draws attention to populations in need and the most pressing issues throughout the county and demonstrates to funders or donors why they should offer support.

Nomination Procedures

PLEASE COMPLETE YOUR NOMINATIONS ONLINE ACCORDING TO THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW.

Online submissions must be received no later than 5:00 pm following the applicable deadlines:
  • HEART OF MARIN: Friday, November 1, 2019
  • HEART OF NAPA: Wednesday, January 29, 2020
You may nominate in multiple categories and self-nominations are accepted, although we welcome you to nominate a community partner who inspires the work you do.

The submitted narrative should be in 12-point font, 1” margins, and may not exceed three (3) pages. No supplementary materials will be accepted and could disqualify your submission (unless you are submitting a nomination for Lifetime Achievement).

All nominees are expected to attend the awards ceremony as we do not announce our recipients until the luncheon. If the nominator is someone other than the nominee, you must ensure they will be able to attend.

It is fine if your work goes outside of Marin/Napa but remember this is an award for service in the particular county – focus on that.
