2022 Nonprofit of the Year

What is California Nonprofit of the Year?

Nonprofit of the Year 2021

Each year, California Assemblymembers and State Senators are invited to honor a Nonprofit of the Year for their district. Co-sponsored by the Assembly Select Committee on the Nonprofit Sector, the newly formed Senate Select Committee on the Nonprofit Sector, and the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits), these awards:

  • Bring attention and recognition to outstanding nonprofits — especially in the local press where it often means the most.
  • Collectively illustrate the remarkable diversity and vibrancy of California's nonprofit community: big and small we touch Californians every day through health clinics, churches, American Legion posts, choral groups, Meals on Wheels, prison reform organizations, wildfire relief organizations, museums, environmental advocacy organizations, and more.
  • Give legislators a way to highlight some types of nonprofits that are often overlooked: all-volunteer organizations and nonprofits based in Black and other communities of color.

Nonprofit honorees strengthen their relationships with legislators and vice versa. As policy advocates, we know that when legislators know nonprofits in their district, they listen more carefully to what nonprofits and the communities they represent need.
