2016 Brooke Russell Astor Award Nominations

The New York Public Library is accepting nominations for the 2016 Brooke Russell Astor Award. Established by David Rockefeller in 1987, the Astor Award is presented annually by the Library to an exceptional unsung hero whose career has been dedicated to improving his or her community in New York City. The ideal Astor Award candidate could be a nonprofit leader or educator whose work has improved the lives of children and families in the City’s most under-resourced neighborhoods. This year’s Astor Award will be presented on May 19, 2016 at the Library’s annual Spring Dinner. The winner will be awarded a cash prize of $10,000. Nominations are due March 28, 2016.
