The Nest, Center for Women, Children and Families, was selected from over 250 North American nonprofits who applied to receive the inaugural $5000 iATS Innovator Award presented by iATS Payments (iATS), a provider of payment solutions for nonprofit organizations.

The innovator awards are dedicated to giving nonprofit organizations access to the resources and critical business skills they need to thrive in the increasingly competitive nonprofit sector. Nominated in the Incubator category, The Nest recognized for their fundraising innovations, demonstrated potential for sustained growth, and impact in Lexington.

“Formalizing a program that not only recognizes but encourages, the growth and innovation of North America’s nonprofits has been a longtime goal for the iATS team,” says Andrew Mosawi, President of iATS Payments. “We’ve spent over 20 years delivering secure payment solutions for nonprofits. Today marks an important milestone for us at iATS, as we look to leverage that service, alongside our extensive industry knowledge and connections to give back to the nonprofit sector and support those who direct positive change in the world.”

Nonprofits across North America applied for the Innovator awards, leading to the expansion of the award program to recognize five additional nonprofits for their achievements. The Incubator category recognizes two organizations for their innovations in fundraising and their demonstrated potential for sustained growth.

All of the award winners receive prize packages, including donations and services designed to enable the growth of each cause.

The Nest provides a safe place for education, counseling and support to women, children and families in crisis.
