2017 Annual Awards for 100% Giving Board!
First presented in 2008 (when just 13 charities received the award), the number of organizations qualifying for this award has dramatically increased since we started it! This year 82 organizations Boards contributed more than $2.2 million to support their organizations. Seven new organizations are joining the ranks of the 100% club in 2017 – Well Done!
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.
Each organization receives a certificate to share with their board—with a star for each year they’ve received the award. Additionally, we had a logo designed that we share with each organization which they can proudly display on their websites and use in their communications pieces to highlight their boards’ commitment.
We send this list of awarded organizations to donors, fund holders, community leaders, and other grant-making bodies in our area to make sure anyone and everyone knows these organizations and Board members are working together for our community and personally demonstrate their belief in the work being done.
Congratulations to all 2017 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.
