2019 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! In 2019, 97 organizations’ Boards contributed more than $2.7 million to support their organizations. 1,213 board members have contributed a total of $4,457,381.45!
A special shout-out goes to:
Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful
for making the list every year for all 12 years!
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, 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.
Congratulations to the 97 organizations recognized. Their 2019 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.
