The Council for Advancement and Support of Education recently announced the 2022 Circle of Award winners, which included recognition of the Northwest College Foundation for their 2021 inaugural Giving Day campaign.

The campaign earned a silver award in the annual/regular giving campaigns with less than 10 staff category.

This was a very well thought out and planned Giving Day that provides a strong foundation to build on,” the judges noted in their feedback. “The design of the website and marketing were also strong.”

CASE’s Circle of Excellence Awards are the premier recognition program for educational advancement. These peer-selected and adjudicated awards honor colleges, universities and schools worldwide whose staff have advanced their organizations with resourcefulness and ingenuity. 

“Our CASE Circle of Excellence Awards celebrate the creative, resourceful and innovative ways advancement professionals around the globe champion their institutions’ success,” CASE President and CEO Sue Cunningham said. “Advancement has never been more important to support and strengthen education. These 2022 Circle of Excellence recipients—from institutions and teams of all sizes and shapes, from regions across the world—showcase how advancement empowers teaching and learning, ignites institutional progress and helps communities thrive.”

In 2022, CASE received more than 4,500 entries from 636 institutions in nearly 30 countries. Of those, volunteer judges chose 626 exemplary entries for bronze, silver, gold or grand gold recognition.

Winners were selected based on several factors, including overall quality, innovation, use of resources and the impact on the institution or its external and internal communities, such as alumni, parents, students, faculty and staff.
