Ability Partners Inc. was selected recently as a semifinalist for the 2017 Collaboration Prize.
The national award is designed to highlight permanent models of collaboration among nonprofit organizations. Ability Partners was selected from more than 350 submissions.
“We are very excited to learn we were one among 17 others worthy of being selected as semifinalists for the Collaboration Prize,” said Mary Walsh Boatfield, president and CEO of Ability Partners, CP Rochester, Happiness House and Rochester Rehabilitation. “It is an honor to be selected from a national pool of nonprofit companies for this award. The affiliation we have among our three agencies allows us to provide and coordinate a greater range of services for adults and children with disabilities in the Greater Rochester and Finger Lakes regions.”
A selection panel will select eight finalists that exemplify the impact of working together on a permanent basis. The finalists will be announced Feb. 23, and each will receive $10,000. The grand prize winner will receive an additional $150,000 and will be announced in April.
