Hopeworks Alumni Board member TJ Lynch named "Board Member of the Year!"

This month, after receiving hundreds of nominations, the team at Nonprofit Pro have selected Hopeworks Board Alumni TJ Lynch as the “Board Member of the Year!”

The award is well deserved. As the article shares:

“TJ Lynch began volunteering with Hopeworks eight years ago when the organization’s annual budget was less than $1 million and it was only able to serve 12 to 20 youths at a time. Thanks to Lynch’s guidance as treasurer and board member, he has helped the nonprofit — which pairs youths with real-world, on-the-job experience — grow substantially. Now, the organization is on track to earn more than $3.6 million and will place more than 100 youths in full-time jobs this fiscal year. Lynch’s thoughtful dedication to Hopeworks is what helped him become NonProfit PRO’s 2021 Board Member of the Year.

Throughout his time with the organization, Lynch has built the foundation for Hopeworks’ growth and led the Hopeworks team through a detailed analysis of its financial processes and procedures. He built the systems the nonprofit needed to succeed, and educated staff members on how to utilize the systems to work with the financials and program.

Not only did Lynch help pave the way for Hopeworks’ significant growth, he built a finance committee and financial and governance processes that will set the stage for Hopeworks’ future. He has ensured that the organization’s financial situation is stable and that its mission and strategic goals are integrated into its financial management, enabling the Hopeworks team to deliver on its promises.”
