Recognize your heroic board!

The 100% Giving Board Award recognizes nonprofits that actively encourage their Board members to make a personal financial gift to the organization’s operating fund. While time and talent on the board are necessary, board members’ personal financial contribution to the nonprofits they serve is crucial.


Show Your Board's Commitment with Community Foundation's 100% Giving Board Award

Download/print the 2021 Application Form and return it by Nov. 1, 2021.

Each year, the Community Foundation 100% Giving Board Award recognizes those organizations for having each of their board members financially support that organization's work in the region. The Giving Board members 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.

First presented in 2008 (when just 13 charities received the award), the number of organizations qualifying for this award has dramatically increased since its beginning!

In 2020, 88 organizations’ Boards contributed a total of $2,433,705.55 to support the organization they serve. Well Done!

A special shout-out goes to: Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful for making the list every year for all 13 years!

Each organization receives a certificate to share with its 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, fundholders, 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.
