You Can Make a Major Gift to a Cause That Matters — At No Cost to You

What’s happening?

Any entity doing work to improve the lives of others is eligible.

Who can make a nomination?

Anyone can. You may be involved with the organization as a member, volunteer or even a founder — but you don't have to be. You could also be — or have been — someone served by the organization.

Or if you know of a group doing good work in your community, that's welcome too.

What It's Like: A Nominator Speaks

Listener Rick Planos helped Curt's Cafe receive a $10,000 Award

"I love Crazy Good Turns. I learn something valuable every time I listen. It's encouraged me to read all kinds of books that I might not have ever known about. But behind the scenes they are incredibly impactful supporters of great causes."

How to make a nomination?

To nominate an organization, simply fill out this form. You'll need to provide:
  • Name & contact information for the organization.
  • A brief story about the group and what they do.
  • A video (if possible).

What happens after I make a nomination?

The winner will be selected by our committee. There are no official criteria or requirements. Any organization receiving an award will be notified in the late summer or early fall.

If you know of friends, family or others who would support the organization, ask that they send in a nomination also. When we hear from multiple people on behalf of an organization, we can see it's making a real impact.

By making a nomination, you'll be added to our email subscriber list - or what we call the #GoodTurnsTeam. You'll receive notices about our latest shows or blog posts (usually just 1-2 messages per month). And you'll get updates about our giveaways and good turns activations, like our thank you campaign or "tip a server" challenge.

Any organization receiving an award will be notified in the fall, and then featured in our December episode.
