The 2013 application format  changed this year focusing on the nonprofit’s Board Governance.  The Goodmans’ Eye for the Good GuyS Board Governance Award recognizes the most effective nonprofit (501c3) boards of directors, one in Maricopa and one in Pima counties.

“Offices are more than just chairs and desks. Offices should bring people together to collaborate, brainstorm and problem-solve,” said Adam Goodman, president of Goodmans Interior Structures. “Our ‘Good GuyS’ program rewards community leaders for their positive impact and provides a new collaborative work environment to help advance the organization’s mission.”

This year, Goodmans formed a partnership with the Arizona State University (ASU) Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation to assess the nonprofits’ performance.

Adapted from the ASU Lodestar Center’s Principles of Effectiveness tool, nonprofits will answer a questionnaire that evaluates the execution of its mission, vision, values, strategic planning and financial management.

“The ASU Lodestar Center created the Principles of Effectiveness in response to an increasing number of nonprofit leaders seeking guidance on best practices. We are pleased to apply this tool to Goodmans Interior Structures’ ‘Good GuyS’ award as it honors nonprofits for their commitment to quality and positive community impact,” said Robert F. Ashcraft, Ph.D., executive director of the ASU Lodestar Center and professor of nonprofit studies in ASU’s School of Community Resources and Development.
