Madison Visionary Partners opens nominations for Madison Visionary Awards

MADISON – Madison Visionary Partners or MVP has opened nominations for the second annual Madison Visionary Awards to honor the individuals who make the community a great place to work, live and play.

This community-building event is also MVP’s signature fundraiser to make a bigger impact in enriching the quality of life for the City of Madison, MVP Executive Director Melanie Thornton said. The event “will celebrate our community’s MVPs,” she said.

The recipients will be announced at the awards breakfast on March 28, 2024, at 8 a.m.

As a community nonprofit organization, MVP exists to inspire giving and bringing together people, local government and resources to enrich daily living for the people of Madison.

Nominations will remain open until Jan. 5, 2024. Awards will be given in five categories: Youth Volunteer of the Year, Community Volunteer of the Year, Philanthropic Businessperson of the Year and Madison Visionary of the Year.

The nominee must live, work or both in the City of Madison and must demonstrate volunteerism that directly impacts the quality of life within the community. Activities that the nomination form lists cannot be part of the nominee’s job description or duties, nor can the nominee receive any monetary or personal benefits from their involvement.

The nominee cannot be a current board member of Madison Visionary Partners.

The Youth Volunteer of the Year’s age can be 21 years old or younger. If younger than 18 years old, the nominee must have parent or guardian’s permission to participate.

The Philanthropic Businessperson of the Year does not have to be located in Madison but should demonstrate a direct impact on the City of Madison through giving, volunteerism or both. For this nomination, include a contact name for the business.

If selected as a finalist, the nominee must be willing to be profiled in “Madison Living Magazine” and attend the awards breakfast on March 28.

Proceeds from 2022 helped in funding Madison-based projects for seven nonprofit organizations. The total of donations was $15,000.
