CHICAGO, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On April 8, 2013, the inaugural NCRP Impact Awards will be held in Chicago to celebrate and honor foundations of all sizes showing effectiveness, leadership, and innovation in solving some of society's most difficult challenges.

Since 1976, the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) has served as the voice of nonprofits and the communities they serve in philanthropy. Through research and advocacy, NCRP works to ensure that philanthropy contributes in meaningful ways to the creation of a fair, just and equitable world.
