"This award not only honors the work of Enterprise with United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and other local nonprofit organizations," said Bernard Dagenais, president and CEO of The Main Line Chamber of Commerce. "It's really a reflection on the importance of strong cooperation between the region's businesses and the nonprofit organizations that serve critical needs for people in Greater Philadelphia. Collaborations such as the ones between Enterprise and the nonprofit sector are essential and it's important to recognize and encourage them. This is why we created the award to begin with."
