Does your charity have a brilliantly effective board?

The 2016 Awards have closed – see which charities won. The 2017 awards will open on 6th October. 

Raising the bar

The Charity Governance Awards is an exciting new not-for-profit initiative created to celebrate outstanding governance in charities both small and large.

We all know that effective governance makes a difference. And by sharing examples of inspirational trustees and brilliant boards we want to show how great governance and doing good go hand-in-hand.

Showcasing our sector

Today, third sector governance is a subject never far from the news. Yet we know that the headlines don’t tell the whole story.

That’s why our awards are exclusively dedicated to charity governance. By shining a spotlight on the best of the sector, we want to demonstrate how effective governance can transform a charity and even more of the lives of its beneficiaries.

It’s an idea backed by trustees too: our research* shows 89% of trustees and managers actively welcome an event recognising charity governance.

Raise your profile and win £5,000

The awards are easy to enter online, with seven categories covering every kind of charitable organisation.

There’s no expensive entry fee or gala dinner tickets to pay for. It’s simply a no-charge opportunity to share your charity’s work and win £5,000 to help you do more of it.

Shortlisted entrants will also get a complimentary invitation to our awards event in London on 23rd May 2017, where the winners will be announced.

About the organisers

The Charity Governance Awards are organised by The Clothworkers’ Company – a City Livery company that supports trusteeship initiatives – in partnership with charity think tank and consultancy NPC (New Philanthropy Capital), charity recruitment specialists Prospectus and volunteer matching charity Reach.

*We undertook an online survey of charity sector stakeholders during November 2014; of the 183 respondents, 111 were trustees.
