Luther Manor Named a Finalist for the 2018 Nonprofit Excellence Awards

United Lutheran Program for the Aging, Inc. (Luther Manor – A Life Plan Community) has been named one of three finalists for the BizTimesMedia LLC’s Nonprofit of the Year Award among large organizations.

Luther Manor is a non-profit Life Plan Community based in Wauwatosa, WI whose vision is to lead the way in abundant living for all who trust us to care.

The awards are designed to shine a light on the community impact of southeastern Wisconsin nonprofits. The program also salutes the work of for-profit organizations, executives and professionals who donate their time, talent and treasure to community causes.

The Nonprofit of the Year award is given to a nonprofit organization in recognition of creativity and innovation in building a sustainable organization, excellence in teamwork, organizational excellence in management and operations, and outstanding dedication to the organization’s mission – “all areas that the remarkable teams at Luther Manor have worked to improve and enhance over the last few years,” said Luther Manor President & CEO, Stephanie Chedid.

“Our residents are telling us we are doing a great job through the resident satisfaction survey results – up 20% this year. Our staff is telling us we are doing a great job through employee engagement survey results – up over 35% this year.  And now, having been selected as a finalist for this award, the broader community has also recognized the great job we are doing at Luther Manor. Congratulations to each and every one of Luther Manor’s staff for the hard work, commitment to Luther Manor’s residents and staff, and dedication to our mission of Sharing God’s love by enriching the lives of older adults that makes Luther Manor such a special place to live, work, volunteer and donate,” remarked Chedid.

More than 100 nominations were submitted for the program this year, and twenty-six finalists were named in eight different categories. The finalists will be recognized and an overall winner in each category will be announced at a breakfast event on Friday, Nov. 2 at the Italian Community Center, 631 E.
