The 2016 Drucker Prize Honors Centro

As an organization that works everyday with creative, entrepreneurial and incredibly resourceful individuals, we have experienced first-hand how innovation is the only driver to real transformation - thus we're extremely humbled to be among the 50 semifinalists for the 2016 Drucker Prize

Each year, the prize provides semifinalists with special access to innovation and nonprofit performance education by the Drucker Institute, and awards a $100,000 grant to the nonprofit organization that best meets Drucker’s definition of innovation: “change that creates a new dimension of performance.”  

We're excited to access the online educational material during this phase of the prize, benchmark our current practices, and apply this new knowledge to our programming and future projects.

We also want to congratulate our fellow semifinalists. The cohort was chosen from a 500+ applicants list, so we are very proud and excited to be in your company. The next round of the prize selects 10 finalists on September 12th, and the winner will be announced on September 30th.
