Ability Partners Inc. was recently named a finalist for the 2017 Collaboration Prize and was awarded $10,000.
The national award highlights permanent models of collaboration among nonprofit organizations. Ability Partners was selected as one of 18 semifinalists from more than 350 submissions and was named one of eight finalists in February by a selection panel featuring major nonprofit collaboration supporters.
“We are very excited to learn we are one of eight others worthy of being selected as finalists 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.”
Judges selected eight collaborations that exemplified the impact of working together on a permanent basis. The grand prize winner will receive an additional $150,000 when announced in April.
