Two organizations’ Board of Directors will be selected as the Center for Nonprofit Advancement’s 2014 Board Leadership Award winners—one for an organization with an annual budget under $2 million and one for an organization with an annual budget over $2 million.

 

The organizations winning the award each receive:

  • a $10,000 grant
  • communication exposure through print, radio, television and social media
  • training and development opportunities for the board and CEO from BoardSource and the Center’s Learning & Leadership Institute

Two organizations from each category will be selected as honorable mention recipients and receive:

  • communication exposure through print, radio, television and social media
  • training and development opportunities for the board and CEO from the Center’s Learning & Leadership Institute

The Board Leadership Award was developed by the Center for Nonprofit Advancement with support from area experts to recognize and spotlight outstanding leadership from Boards of Directors of Washington-area nonprofit organizations. The award recognizes the role that boards play in building and sustaining successful organizations by executing their fiduciary and leadership responsibilities—assuring that they are well led, well supported and responsive to the people and communities they serve.

This award increases the profile of recognized organizations while inspiring stronger board leadership throughout the Greater Washington nonprofit sector, much like The Washington Post Award for Excellence in Nonprofit Management, a program of the Center for 20 years.

"This award has already helped to change how Board members define good governance," said Center CEO Glen O’Gilvie. "The competition continues to inspire Board members of all nonprofits, by providing the tools and strategies they need to replicate the success our winners are modeling."

The award winning organizations must demonstrate not only a steady track record of good governance and excellent leadership, but a significant improvement and notable achievements of their organization, as a result.
