Not-for-profit treasurers have to get the basics right. There’s no room for flimflam, big talk, or massaging the figures. The money just has to be there – or everybody misses out. We owe treasurers a lot.
Most treasurers are untiring, painstaking, and efficient. They work long hours without asking for thanks or recognition. They keep the group afloat.
Every community organisation understands how much they owe to the person who keeps track of the finances. But they don’t often tell them so. Our Community and the Commonwealth Bank and their Not-for-Profit Sector Banking team believe Australia’s treasurers deserve some recognition.
The Commonwealth Bank Not-for-Profit Treasurers’ Awards are designed to provide that recognition.
The winners of the Not-for-Profit Treasurers’ Awards are announced at a gala event held during Not-for-Profit Finance Week.
This year, people can take part in the 2021 Not-for-Profit Treasurers’ Awards in one of two ways:
a. Nominate their treasurer: A great way to show appreciation, with all nominated treasurers receiving an official digital Certificate of Appreciation.
b. Enter as a not-for-profit treasurer: If a participant isn’t a not-for-profit treasurer, share their insights for a chance to win one of four $5,000 cash donations for a not-for-profit. Simply tell the awards how they have creatively innovated or transformed their not-for-profit to deal with the challenging environments.
Note: This year, judges will be looking for the most original and creative ideas that will help community treasurers have an even greater impact. Treasurers must self-nominate above (Section B) to be eligible for the $5,000 donation.
