Spanish Debate League earns national nonprofit award for showing our mission of empowerment in action.
We are pleased to announce that our Spanish Debate League programming earned the Cause The Change Award in spring 2018.
The annual Cause the Change Award recognizes a successful campaign by a nonprofit which has “made a significant impact on their community by living out their mission”. The award panel, which chose from a range of nonprofit entries across the nation, selected the Spanish Debate League for its phenomenal 2017 growth and positive affirmation of Latinx students’ identities.
MNUDL was awarded a $2,500 check, a trophy, and two tickets to the national nonprofit conference, Cause Camp. Nonprofits in attendance included Charity Navigator, The Wounded Warrior Project, The Salvation Army, National Breast Cancer Foundation, the Philadelphia Eagles Charitable Foundation, and many more. Cause Camp was an inspiring and informative experience. Our representatives learned from nationally-recognized nonprofit leaders like keynote speaker Vu Le of Nonprofit AF, Lori Jacobwith of Ignited Fundraising, Paul Reynolds of The Reynolds Center for Learning and Creativity, and others!
This award and last year’s programming success would not be possible without our Spanish debate coaches, volunteers, and community leaders. We’re grateful to NonprofitHub and myRollCall for recognizing their contributions with the award.
