Oceanside CA— Tri-City Hospital Foundation has been named the 2018 Nonprofit of the Year for the 36th Senate District, by Senator Patricia Bates. This is the first time Tri-City Hospital Foundation has been recognized for this award.
In partnership with the California Legislature, the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits) will host a special celebration in Sacramento at the third annual California Nonprofits Day on June 6, 2018. The event will celebrate Tri-City Hospital Foundation and other organizations selected by their local legislators as Nonprofit of the Year for their efforts and positive impacts in their district community. Tri-City Hospital Foundation will be honored for their commitment and support of exceptional local healthcare.
“We’re thrilled and honored to be named a Nonprofit of the Year. It’s great to know that the impact the Foundation has had on our community caught the attention of Senator Bates,” said Glen Newhart, president of Tri-City Hospital Foundation. “We’re very grateful for our generous donors and volunteers that make it possible for our dedicated team to change the lives of so many in our community.”
The first California Nonprofits Day was held on June 22, 2016 and last year 96 organizations were recognized by their district legislators. CalNonprofits is a statewide membership organization that brings California’s nonprofit community together by working with the legislature, government agencies, philanthropy and the public to advocate for the communities served throughout the state.
