2020 California Nonprofit of the Year

Posted on Category Stories

Each year, California Assemblymembers and state senators are invited to honor a nonprofit of the year for their district. Assemblymember Marc Levine chose Community Action Marin as the 2020 California Nonprofit of the Year!

“On behalf of residents throughout the North Bay, I am proud to recognize Community Action Marin as the 2020 Nonprofit of the Year for Sonoma and Marin counties,” said Assemblymember Levine. “The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated the need for community partners to help vulnerable families through this unimaginable time. For decades, Community Action Marin has been one of our most reliable partners to help fight poverty and to give a voice to everyone that calls the North Bay home. This year, the agency has stepped up once again and has been essential to help support Marin County residents impacted by COVID-19. Our community is stronger because of its leadership. I look forward to partnering with Community Action Marin in the future to build a healthier, more equitable community for us all.”  

This year, 105 legislators across the state recognized the important work of nonprofits in their community. This recognition brings attention to outstanding nonprofits while illustrating the remarkable diversity and vibrancy of California’s nonprofit community. 

This recognition comes at a time when we have been working hard alongside our community family to avert crisis and strengthen our resilience in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and the inequities it has revealed. It’s especially meaningful now, but we got here because our team has been dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other in Marin for over 50 years. On behalf of our staff and board, I am grateful for this honor, and we are proud to be recognized.” -Chandra Alexandre, CEO
