CHICAGO, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On April 8, 2013, the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP; www.ncrp.org) held the inaugural NCRP Impact Awards ( www.ncrp.org/impact-awards) 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, 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.

"This year's awardees have inspired me and many others with their courage and leadership in helping solve the tough problems our world faces," said Aaron Dorfman, executive director of NCRP. "They serve as great examples for others wanting to practice philanthropy that produces real results and benefits our communities."

Through the NCRP Impact Awards, the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy honored foundations practicing smart, high-impact philanthropy in four categories.  The 2013 awardees were:

NoVo Foundation ( http://www.ncrp.org/impact-awards/awardees/novo-foundation) Awardee for Large Private Foundation (annual giving of at least $25 million)



NoVo Foundation is dedicated to catalyzing a transformation in global society, moving from a culture of domination to one of equality and partnership. It supports the development of capacities in people – individually and collectively – to help create a caring and balanced world. Recently, NoVo's grants to anti-violence and human rights advocacy groups helped support efforts that led to the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
