The Mutual of America Community Partnership Award annually honors the outstanding contributions that nonprofit organizations, in partnership with public, private and other social sector organizations, make to society.

Each year, the Mutual of America Foundation sponsors a national competition in which hundreds of organizations demonstrate the value of their partnership to the communities they serve, their ability to be replicated by others and their capacity to stimulate new approaches to addressing significant social issues.

To be considered for the Mutual of America Community Partnership Award, an organization must complete an application and provide a typewritten statement, not to exceed three pages in length, which addresses the following criteria: A description of the partnership and the role of each partner; an explanation of how the partnership was started; the duration of the partnership to date (a minimum of one year); a demonstration that the partnership has made a difference; the ability of the partnership to be replicated and stimulate new ideas in addressing social issues; and the partnership's commitment to advancing the mission and principles of the applicant organization.

In addition, the organization should include a copy of its most recent annual report, audited financial statements, a comprehensive list of the individuals comprising the governing body of the organization (board of directors or trustees and principal officers) and the name and telephone number of the person at the organization to contact concerning the application. Please refer to the complete Award Guidelines.

Completed applications must be received no later than April 1, 2014. Applications that fail to meet the criteria will not be considered.
