This $5,000 award recognizes an organization’s Board of Directors for Outstanding Board Leadership as it dedicates time and resources to achieving the organization’s unique mission. The Award was established under Volunteer Consulting Group, now Governance Matters, Inc., in 2010 to honor the memory of Brooke W. Mahoney.  For thirty-eight years, Brooke served as our Executive Director and Innovator-in-Chief.  Long before “good governance” became a discussion topic for the nonprofit sector, Brooke set out to bring diverse, strong individuals into nonprofit board rooms with the goal of creating a “brain trust” to help organizations achieve their mission.
