CatEx DCA client member Macmillan Cancer Support has been shortlisted with five other nonprofit organisations in the website category of the 2012 Third Sector Excellence Awards for its innovative use of its online public-facing community, which is designed to enhance the charity’s existing cancer support initiatives.
The project has been shortlisted in recognition of the charity’s use of its community, following a partnership with online social community provider Telligent. The Telligent Community enables members to connect with peers, share and discuss their experiences, get more involved in the charity’s work, and feel less alone in the fight against cancer. In working with Telligent to integrate the online community offering into its existing website, Macmillan has been able to further its mission to reach and improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer.
The 2012 Third Sector Excellence Awards finalists will be announced at the Lancaster London Hotel on the evening of Thursday, September 27, 2012.
