Nominate an Individual or Business for Free Through Feb. 1

Communitas AwardsHonoring Excellence in Community Service and Social Responsibility

If you, your company or someone you volunteer with deserves special recognition for community service or social responsibility, we want to hear about it. Through February 1, we will allow anyone to nominate one business or one individual for free in our 2013 Communitas Awards.

AMCP is a marketing and communication organization that gives back to the professional community that we serve. Our MarCom, Hermes and AVA Digital competitions do not charge entry fees for pro bono work and we partner with our winners through grants to support efforts in their communities. Last month, AMCP’s board donated $15,000 in the name of our members to organizations that are working to rebuild communities ravaged by storms, homelessness and unemployment. Recipients included the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, local life shelters and missions, the YMCA and various charities.

Over the past five years, AMCP has contributed over $85,000 to charities and nonprofits. But perhaps our biggest contribution is administering and financially supporting the Communitas Awards, an international program that recognizes individuals, companies and organizations that give back to their communities and demonstrate social responsibility. By recognizing these givers, we are hoping to not only help their community efforts, but their businesses. We envision a day when every company will have to exhibit a spirit of communitas as an essential business practice.

The free nomination offer is only until February 1 and is not being publicized beyond our own database. The nomination form will reflect no charge for one nomination upon check out.

I was thoroughly surprised to find a check for $5000.00 in my mailbox here at the American Red Cross yesterday! The entire creative team was wide-eyed in disbelief that AMCP made such a generous donation for Hurricane Sandy disaster relief in recognition of our work. We are thrilled and truly thank you.
