Literacy Council of Northern Virginia was recognized on Thursday, May 23, 2013, by the Center for Nonprofit Advancement and The Washington Post as the 2013 honorable mention recipient of The Washington Post Award for Excellence in Nonprofit Management.

“The Center’s Selection Committee of experts was fascinated by the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia’s strategies and attention to practices including volunteer management, respect of and support for diverse cultures, and strong collaborations with other organizations,” said Center CEO Glen O’Gilvie. “We appreciate Literacy Council of Northern Virginia’s partnership with the Center through this competition and the inspiration their best practices will provide all nonprofits.”

Now in its 19th year, The Washington Post Award is a competitive program open to all 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in the Washington metropolitan area. Candidates are judged in the areas of fiscal management, communication, organizational and resource development, planning, human resources, risk management, and use of technology.

This award is a program of the Center for Nonprofit Advancement, sponsored by The Washington Post, with additional support by the Rotary Club of Washington, DC and Georgetown University’s Center for Public and Nonprofit Leadership’s Nonprofit Executive Certificate Program.

The award winner is selected through a three-step judging process including a two-part written application and a site visit.  The Washington Post Award Selection Committee is an all-volunteer committee selected by the Center for Nonprofit Advancement.

The mission of the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia is to teach adults the basic skills of reading, writing, speaking, and understanding English in order to empower them to participate more fully and confidently in their communities. LCNV is at the forefront of bridging the gap between workers who need vital literacy skills and our region’s job growth.

The Center for Nonprofit Advancement strengthens the capacity of nonprofit organizations throughout Greater Washington, D.C.  The Center directly partners with nearly 1,000 nonprofits helping them achieve their missions through training and technical assistance programs, networking, advocacy and group buying power.
