Two organizations will be selected as honorable mention recipients and will 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 17 years.

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.

“The Board Leadership Award is poised to acknowledge boards that have exerted their leadership in an exemplary way and motivate those that have not with clear and tangible best practices each organization can adopt,” said Center CEO Glen O’Gilvie.

This award is a program of the Center for Nonprofit Advancement, sponsored by Reznick Group and BoardSource.
