The Board Leadership Award

A program of the Center for Nonprofit Advancement, The Board Leadership Award was developed with support from area experts to recognize and spotlight outstanding leadership from Boards of Directors of Washington-area nonprofit organizations.

The Center for Nonprofit Advancement's 2015 Board Leadership Award is presented by CohnReznick with additional support by BoardSource.

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.

Two organizations’ Board of Directors will be selected as the Center for Nonprofit Advancement’s 2015 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 and 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 wil receive communication exposure through print, radio, television and social media and training and development opportunities for the board and CEO from the Center’s Learning & Leadership Institute.
