The Halo Awards celebrate the best campaigns in corporate social impact. 

In 2024, 38 Winners took home Gold and Silver awards across our 18 categories. 

“This year’s winners demonstrate what is possible when companies and nonprofits partner to create programs that benefit the business and the cause. Social impact is not only good for the world, but good for the business, and we are inspired by the creativity, innovation, and commitment the winners have shown to address the challenges our society is facing today.”

– Muneer Panjwani, CEO Engage For Good

2024 HALO AWARD WINNERS

Nonprofit of the Year - charity: water

Since 2006, charity: water has shown that impact and innovation are core parts of its DNA. As a nonprofit organization focused on bringing clean and safe water to people around the world, it has distinguished itself with a radically transparent model that sends 100% of public donations to the field while providing unparalleled access for donors to the on-the-ground impact they’re helping to create. The organization has implemented groundbreaking technological solutions and created powerful and unique ways to engage corporations in their mission. That includes funding more than 138,000 water projects across 29 countries since 2006, the creation of remote rural water monitoring systems, and a new partnership with Kalahari Resorts and Conventions that has committed $50 million to provide clean water to one million people in Africa.

For Profit of the Year - Google.org

Google.org has a long record of using its core competency of innovative technology to implement custom solutions that increase the reach and impact of its nonprofit partners. Over time, this partnership model has expanded from not only providing technology solutions but also offering additional support, such as substantial cash grants and Googlers who work full-time with their nonprofit partner teams to bring the tech solutions to life. Standout examples include nonprofit partnerships that leverage AI and other cutting-edge technology to address issues such as increasing access to crisis support for LGBTQ youth and veterans in most need of help, efficient pest control for smallholder farmers in India, and solutions for antibiotic resistance. Through these partnerships, Google.org has demonstrated innovation in both the technology it provides and the model it employs to support its nonprofit partners.

Best of the Best

A collaboration between Hy-Vee and Feeding America, “100 Million Meals” was recognized as the “Best of the Best,” an award presented by social impact agency For Momentum. In 2023, Hy-Vee and Feeding America transformed a traditional in-store register roundup into a multi-pronged cause marketing campaign that united customers, employees, INDYCAR race fans, influencers, and suppliers across the nation around one cause: fighting hunger.
