Now in its fifth year, The Good Governance Awards is an initiative that recognises and encourages adherence to good governance practice by nonprofits in Ireland.

In 2020 in recognition of the fact that there are very many small nonprofits we are introducing a new entry category for organisations with an annual turnover of less than €50,000. There will be 6 entry categories in 2020 based on annual turnover.
