Abila Announces Advocate of Distinction Awards

Nominations open December 2013 for philanthropic leaders with track records of success

AUSTIN, TEXAS, November 15, 2013Abila, a provider of software solutions dedicated to serving dynamic nonprofit organizations, associations and government agencies, announced today the launch of the Abila Advocate of Distinction Award.

“Today is National Philanthropy Day, and we could think of no better time to share in the spirit of giving than by providing monthly charitable donations  in honor of those front line leaders in philanthropy,” said Krista Endsley, CEO of Abila. “We think it’s important to continually acknowledge and award the efforts of our community members who are making a difference through their passion, time and service. An advocate is defined as a person who supports, promotes, champions and defends a cause, and that is why we are proud to recognize individual leaders with the Abila Advocate of Distinction Award.”

Nominations will open in December 2013, and the award is available for any individual who works for, or volunteers with, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Anyone can be nominated, or nominate themselves, to be recognized for their hard work and dedication in the nonprofit space.

Starting in February 2014, Abila will announce and profile a monthly winner. The winner will receive $1,000 for the philanthropy or charitable cause of their choice.
