Corporate Citizenship Award

smiling business people

Do you know of a business that has shown its commitment to preventing or ending domestic violence or supporting victims and survivors? If so, let us know about these exceptional companies so that we can recognize them!

The Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence is proud to open nominations for the second year for our new award highlighting these businesses and promoting corporate/nonprofit partnerships in Delaware.

The Corporate Citizenship honoree will be recognized and presented with a plaque at this year's Purple Ribbon Event on October 24 at the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts in Wilmington. In addition, DCADV will highlight some of the other nominees on our website and at the event.
