$20K office renovation up for grabs in contest for nonprofit leaders

Donations to nonprofits may be down, but local office furniture dealer Goodmans Interior Structures remains committed to the community and is again giving away a $20,000 office renovation to a nonprofit leader in Maricopa County and another in Pima County.

Nominations for the fifth annual Goodmans Eye for the Good Guy contest will be accepted through April 16 at

To be eligible, nominees must be the executive director, president, CEO or other top executive of a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Maricopa or Pima counties. Finalists will be selected based on the nominee’s application of good business principles, demonstration of excellence in leadership, organizational influence on the community and populations served and need for a more efficient workspace.

Ten finalists will be announced in May, and the public will have the opportunity to vote online for the 2010 “Good Guys” in each market. The winners, to be announced in June, will be selected through a combination of online public voting and an assessment by a panel of local judges.
