Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan has chosen Hively as the 2020 Nonprofit of the Year for Assembly District 16! This award is co-sponsored by the Assembly Select Committee on the Nonprofit Sector and the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits).
Assemblymember Bauer-Kahan stated that “with nonprofits doing more than ever to help their communities weather this COVID-19 crisis, your work should rightfully be celebrated!” Staff and volunteers at Hively have worked tirelessly to ensure that children and families are supported and have the resources they need during these unprecedented times. From diapers to rental assistance and food, families have turned to Hively for help with the most basic and fundamental needs. With the unwavering support of our amazing donors and friends who have invested heavily in our work over the past six months, we have been honored to respond. “The pandemic and shelter-in-place orders of the last few months have put nonprofits – usually hidden in plain sight – in the spotlight,” explains Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). “California Nonprofit of the Year is an opportunity for our elected officials to celebrate the good work they see nonprofits doing in their districts, and for everyone to appreciate the collective impact of nonprofits in our communities.”
