Financial Leadership Awards: Best Small Charity entries

Small Charities Week 2015 – Enter the Financial Leadership Awards: Best Small Charity

Sayer Vincent, specialist auditors to the charity sector, is calling for small charities to nominate outstanding financial professionals for its Financial Leadership Awards 2015 and get the chance to win £1,000 towards training and development.

Now in its third year, the Financial Leadership Awards recognise individuals and finance teams in charities that have gone the extra mile to add value to their organisations and beneficiaries. The awards have five categories including ‘Best Small Charity’.

Kate Sayer, partner at Sayer Vincent says, “Small Charities Week is a chance to recognise the work and efforts of small charities across the UK. We want to invite small charities to nominate finance professionals who have made a special contribution to their organisation.”

Last year’s winner of the Best Small Charity award, Gina Spencer, Head of finance at Age UK, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin said: “Finance tends to be an invisible function, working away in the background and enabling the organisation to operate so it’s great that Sayer Vincent’s awards recognise the hard work of these ‘unsung heroes’.”

Every winner is awarded a prize of £1,000 for their charity to spend on training and development of their choice.  Smaller packages of training and publications are given to entries that are highly commended by the judges. 

Charities have until 31st July 2015 to submit their entry and the winners of each category will be presented with their award at a gala dinner on 17th September 2015 at the Charity Accountants’ Conference in Nottingham.

Applicants can apply for an award at by downloading and completing a short questionnaire. Guidance for applying can also be found online.
