$5,000 Grant Opportunity for the H. Craig Lewis Good Governance Award

Do you think of your Board of Directors as a high-performing work group whose members take their board responsibilities seriously? Does your board operate to best achieve your organization’s goals?

If so, your board may be eligible for H. Craig Lewis Good Governance Award from The Philadelphia Foundation. This $5,000 award recognizes excellence and effectiveness among the region’s nonprofit boards.  This year, two awards will be presented.

The Good Governance Award was established by the Foundation’s Board of Managers in recognition of former Chair H. Craig Lewis’ 10-year leadership of The Philadelphia Foundation board. This award is presented to nonprofits in the region whose Board exemplifies the finest traits in leadership of a nonprofit organization including governance, fiduciary responsibility and strategic thinking.

Applicants must meet the same eligibility requirements as they would to apply for The Philadelphia Foundation’s discretionary grantmaking in order to be considered.  When complete, please upload the required supplemental materials and the proposal to the Lewis Governance YouSendIt Dropbox.

The Lewis Governance proposal is located at the bottom of the Forms and Applications page on The Philadelphia Foundations website.

Deadline August 9 at 5 p.m.
Award ceremony in the Fall
