Nominate a Nonprofit Invisible Champion Today!
The Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia (CSCNS) is excited to present the Invisible Champion Awards (formerly the Bhayana Family Foundation Awards) in partnership with United Way Halifax and the Province of Nova Scotia. Along with a new name, the awards are expanding this year to be province wide. These awards recognize the extraordinary people and nonprofit organizations making a difference in our community. We are proud to distinguish the unsung heroes in the nonprofit sector working tirelessly to create possibility and make change in Nova Scotia.
This year, the awards will be offered to individuals AND nonprofit organizations across Nova Scotia. A total of 20 recipients will be awarded $1,000 each. In a sector where individuals and teams do amazing things with limited resources, the awards are to be used by the recipients in a way that will better equip them to do their important work. The awards recognize creativity, diversity, inclusivity, dedication, team building, leadership, community partnership, and sector sustainability in year-round service delivery as well as in response to COVID-19.
The Invisible Champion Awards are made possible by a generous donation from the Bhayana Family Foundation. As a former member of United Way Toronto’s Board of Trustees, Raksha M. Bhayana is a dedicated community volunteer and a passionate champion for the recognition of those who make a difference in our community every day. We would like to express our admiration and gratitude to Raksha and the Bhayana Family Foundation.
