The Jed Foundation (JED) is thrilled to have won a Stevie Award for Nonprofit Organization of the Year. The award, which was granted as part of 2023’s American Business Awards, recognizes the achievements and impact of organizations across the United States.
More than 230 executives from the country’s top businesses joined the panel of judges for this year’s awards. The judges averaged scores on metrics such as effectiveness, creativity, and integrity to place the top three nominees in Bronze, Silver, and Gold categories. JED scored highest in the Nonprofit or Government Organization category, and was awarded a Gold Stevie Award trophy at a ceremony and banquet for winners in June.
“[JED] has achieved remarkable success in building partnerships, promoting awareness, providing resources, and advocating for change at multiple levels,” one judge commented. “Their diverse programs and initiatives have contributed significantly to building resilience, social connectedness, and help-seeking behaviors among young adults.”
