CDA Awarded 2017 California Nonprofit of the Year!
Bonita, CA, June 23, 2017 - Child Development Associates (CDA) will be honored as Nonprofit of the Year at a celebration of California Nonprofits Day at the State Capitol in Sacramento.
CDA has been selected by Assemblywoman Shirley Weber as an exceptional nonprofit organization in her 79th district community. CDA will join nearly one hundred other nonprofits from across the state being honored at the annual California Nonprofits Day event. This event is formally recognized by Assembly Concurrent Resolution 54, authored by the chair of the new Assembly Select Committee on the Nonprofit Sector Assemblywoman Monique Limón (D-Santa Barbara).
The award recipients will be honored at a luncheon at Sacramento’s Convention Center on June 28, 2017. Honorable guests include Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, Assemblywoman Monique Limón, and Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has also been invited to speak to the gathered honorees and their legislators.
“Nonprofit organizations are vitally important to the economy and well-being of California. But too often nonprofits are ‘hidden in plain sight,” says Jan Masaoka. “We are thrilled that the State Assembly has passed a resolution for the second year in a row that puts the spotlight on nonprofits as an economic power that uses that power for the common good.” CalNonprofits is a statewide alliance of over 10,000 organizations, representing and promoting California’s growing nonprofit sector and working to bring the full power of nonprofits to strengthening communities.
