The Donner Foundation Awards were held on November 7 in Toronto, Ontario. Youth Peer Co-Director, Sylvia Dearing (front row, far right) was on hand to accept on EPIC’s behalf the $5,000 Peter F. Drucker Award for Non-Profit Management. Every year, this award is given to a non-profit organization with a consistent record of excellence and innovation in the management and delivery of services.
EPIC also took home the award in the Services for Children category, which came with a $5,000 prize. This is the fifth time EPIC has received this top national prize for its work with the children of Cape Breton.
In 2010, EPIC received the overall William H. Donner Award for Excellence in Delivery of Social Services out of all entered organizations across the country.
