The 8th Annual Long Island Imagine Awards will be virtually held Wednesday, July 8, 2020, 5:30-6:30pm on YouTube Live – more details TBA.

Last year, over 450 of the region’s top nonprofit executives, volunteers and corporate sponsors attended this gala event which was created to offer formal acknowledgement to some of Long Island’s most effective and innovative nonprofit organizations.

Over 160 nonprofit applications were submitted to win $5,000 grants in each of five categories: Innovation, Leadership Excellence, Rising Star, Social Impact and Arts and Culture. Of this pool of worthy applicants, 20 were selected as finalists and one in each category as well as a Fan Favorite will be awarded the grant LIVE at the awards ceremony.

“I really enjoyed taking part in the Imagine Awards. What a great concept. You put the spotlight on some very worthy organizations. Some are well known and deeply respected. Others are new or may not get the recognition they deserve. But equally, they play an extremely valuable role in helping people feel needed, respected and loved.” ~Doug Geed, Anchor, News 12
