While time and talent on the board are necessary, board members’ personal financial contribution to the nonprofits they serve is crucial. The 100% Giving Board Award recognizes nonprofits which actively encourage their Board members to make a personal financial gift to the organization’s operating fund.
In 2008, just 13 nonprofits were able to nominate their boards for this award; that number has grown each year. In 2016, 93 organizations proudly display this award.
Each organization is given a certificate to share with their board—emblazoned with a gold star for each year they’ve earned the award.
Congratulations to all 2016 Giving Board members who support their chosen cause and the mission of their organizations by making an annual gift. You understand your role as a board member, and you are commended for your commitment.
