*Who are Stewardship Award nominees? Our community is fortunate to have many board members who exemplify at least three of BoardSource’s “Ten Basic Responsibilities of a Board.” Since 2005, Foellinger Foundation has honored these individuals annually through their Stewardship Award.
We’ll connect you to nominees based on their experiences, your interests and your mutual desires to serve.

Board Bootcamp is a Get on Board program of the Paul Clarke Nonprofit Resource Center with grant support by Foellinger Foundation. In 2011, we partnered with YLNI to enhance and expand their existing program. After several years of success, we have since taken responsibility for the project, working with YLNI to share the opportunity with their audience.
