To celebrate its 100th anniversary, TIAA is recognizing outstanding individuals who spend their time inspiring others in the nonprofit sector with TIAA Difference Maker 100. They want to honor people who are making a difference through their professional or personal pursuits by sharing stories of how they make an impact.

Until June 12, University of Colorado faculty and staff may nominate themselves or others who work at a nonprofit organization (like CU) and make a positive impact. Here’s how it works:

  • 100 recipients will be recognized with a $10,000 donation from TIAA made in their name to the nonprofit organization through which they made a difference.
  • The contest is open to applicants and nominees currently employed at a nonprofit organization.
  • Candidates need not be TIAA customers.

To enter, tell TIAA how the nominee is making a difference. Nominations will ask about the important work completed, its impact and challenges faced. Don’t forget to upload either a video or a photo of the nominee.

To be eligible, nominees must work for a not-for-profit organization, but the way the nominee makes a difference can be through work or volunteer efforts. The judges will consider motivation, perseverance, creativity and impact.

Winners will be announced by Oct. 1. Submit nominations here.
