For more details about the award, review the Volunteer Staff Partnership Award overview

The Volunteer Staff Partnership Award recognizes a volunteer and staff team that models a successful partnership to positively impact the mission of the American Cancer Society. Nominations can be individuals or group nominations. Partnerships between volunteers and staff set us apart from other organizations. In these relationships, each partner has a different, but equally important role. These volunteer and staff teams may operate side-by-side in the community, collaborate on projects virtually, or work together across the globe.

Nomination Requirements

The volunteer staff partnership must have successfully impacted the mission of the American Cancer Society in at least two of the following ways: 

  • Increased community engagement
  • Grown revenue
  • Impacted mission outcome
  • Enhanced stewardship
  • Increased partnerships 
  • Created new opportunities

Ideally, the volunteer and staff were innovative in their strategy and actionable steps can clearly be identified. Also, volunteers and staff should have worked together a minimum of one year.

One partnership will be chosen from each Region and Global Headquarters for a total of seven winners.

To submit a nomination, complete the Volunteer Staff Partnership nomination form. Please note the name, credentials, and title submitted with the application will be used on all collateral materials including the certificate.
