Triumph Foundation Honored for California Nonprofits Day

Andrew Skinner June 8, 2018 News, Noteworthy, SCI

Nonprofit of the Year

Triumph Foundation is proud to announce we have been selected as a 2018 California Nonprofit of the Year by Assemblyman Dante Acosta.

Our mission is to help individuals with Spinal Cord Injury/Disorder (SCI) to triumph over their disability and to inspire them to keep moving forward with their lives by pushing themselves to get better every day.

The entire Triumph Foundation team and our Ambassadors transform the lives of those affected with paralysis everyday, and we are deeply humbled to be recognized by Dante Acosta as a Nonprofit of the Year.

“Nonprofits make California communities stronger, yet we’re often so busy that we don’t toot our own horns about the work we’re doing,” explains Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). “California Nonprofits Day is an opportunity for our elected officials to recognize the good work they see nonprofits doing in their districts, and it also demonstrates the larger collective impact of nonprofits throughout California.”

“I am consistently astonished by the inspiring work they do,” Acosta said. “The Triumph Foundation is a special part of our community and I couldn’t be more proud to thank them for the work they are doing to make our region, and California as a whole, a better, more compassionate place to live.” Read Entire Article

About Nonprofits Day

California Nonprofits Day, now in its third year, was formally recognized by Assembly Concurrent Resolution 191, authored by the chair of the Assembly Select Committee on the Nonprofit Sector, Assemblywoman Monique Limón (Santa Barbara), who will speak at the celebration luncheon. The day is organized by Assemblymember Limón and CalNonprofits.

According to “Causes Count,” a 2016 report commissioned by CalNonprofits, the nonprofit sector is the 4th largest industry in the state, employing nearly one million people. Each year, California nonprofits generate over $200 billion in revenue and bring in $40 billion in revenue from outside of California. The unpaid labor contributed by volunteers at nonprofits is equivalent to 450,000 full-time jobs every year.
