We made it: 100% Giving Board Award!
The For Kids Foundation has received the 2019 100% Giving Board Award from the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada.
First presented in 2008 (when just 13 charities received the award), the number of organizations qualifying for this award has dramatically increased since the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada started it! In 2019, 97 organizations’ Boards contributed more than $2.7 million to support their organizations.
“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.”
