Charity Governance Awards open for entries with £35k prize fund


The 2022 Charity Governance Awards are now open for entries, with a chance for charity boards to win a share of the £35,000 prize fund.


Now in their seventh year, the Charity Governance Awards want to shine a light on the very best boards with particular emphasis on small charities – the two Improving Impact categories will now focus on organisations with no more than thirty paid employees.

National and local charities of all sizes can enter for free with a deadline for entries of 26 January 2022.


Entrants must have been established before 31 December 2018 and be registered in the UK. They can also submit a single entry into only one of the following categories:


  • Board Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

  • Transforming with Digital

  • COVID-19: Embracing Opportunity and Harnessing Risk for Long-term Change

  • Improving Impact in Small Charities (0-3 Paid Staff)

  • Improving Impact in Small Charities (4-30 Paid Staff)

The winners of all five categories will each receive a £5,000 prize as an unrestricted grant. Runners-up will receive £1,000, and all shortlisted charities will also receive a paid one-year membership to the Association of Chairs for their board and a complimentary place on a Cause4 Trustee Leadership Programme for a new member of the board.
