Awards in Human Service are now the Virginia McKnight Binger Unsung Hero Awards
In 2015, 30 years after its inception, the foundation's Virginia McKnight Binger Awards in Human Service became the Virginia McKnight Binger Unsung Hero Awards.
Over the past 30 years, McKnight has shifted the number of awardees, adjusted the dollar amount, and refined the criteria to better align with programmatic developments at McKnight.
In 2015, the Virginia McKnight Binger Human Service Awards evolved again, through a new partnership with the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits to extend the awards’ reach and visibility, and create new opportunities to celebrate Minnesotans giving selflessly to help each other.
