 2019 Best In Class Nominees

Best In Class nominees are chosen by the APS Board of Directors' Disbursement Committee based on their program's impact and growth since receiving Foundation funding.  The Committee considers programs that have the ability to grow further to widen and deepen their impact with Best In Class funding.

The final decision is up to the community.  The Foundation asks community members to visit our website, learn more about the nominated programs and to vote for a Best In Class winner.  The winner is announced at the Gold Bar Gala. 

Voting will open March 1, 2019 and will close on
March 21, 2019! 
Please check back on this page to vote on March 1st!
