The Stand For Your Mission Awards

The Stand for Your Mission Awards have been created to recognize the critical role that boards play in standing up for the organizations they believe in by advocating for their organizations' mission and creating public will for positive social change. The awards will recognize nonprofit boards that have established advocacy as an expectation for engaged and effective board leadership and, by doing so, are helping their organizations realize their missions and set priorities in partnership with policymakers rather than wait for the outcome.

The winning organization will receive a $5,000 cash award and be featured on the BoardSource website, the Stand for Your Mission website, in social media, and in other ways as they present themselves.
