The Nonprofit Eclipse Integrity Awards are presented to nonprofits or charities which demonstrate outstanding community service through their mission and accomplishments, demonstrate excellence in programs and fiscal stewardship, operate with integrity through ethical leadership and a strong team, are transparent in their communications and value the power of collaborations/partnerships. Their actions make a positive impact on the vitality and overall health of our community while supporting the ideals of BBB.
Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley was honored to receive the Nonprofit Eclipse Integrity Award in the 75+ employees category. In presenting the award, the BBB noted that, “The staff provides excellence through professional expertise and the balance of a caring spirit. Collaboration and creativity are valued and welcomed because they help the organization better meet challenges faced by clients. The team delivers quality services, invites volunteerism and financial support and is a trustworthy steward of funding, making it an organization that’s gained the public’s trust.”
