As a result, this organization fuels growth and elevates its community, and the ACHD staff are doing the best work of their lives.
ACHD is a community housing and development organization in King County, Washington, with a mission to provide opportunities for African diaspora immigrant and refugee communities, families, and individuals in King County to attain health and housing stability, economic development, high-quality education, and referrals to legal services.

Earlier in 2022, GiveGab and CyberGrants—which are joining EveryAction, Network for Good, and Social Solutions to become Bonterra—held their own awards to recognize organizations excelling in their spaces. GiveGab’s 2022 Giving Day Spark Awards honored six Giving Day partners that are sparking community engagement and fundraising growth during GiveGab’s annual Giving Day Leaders Forum. At CyberGrants’ 2022 Social Impact Leadership Conference (SILC), several corporate social responsibility customers were honored for their creativity, innovation, and continued commitment to driving maximum social impact.
In 2023, we look forward to expanding our Bonterra Impact Awards to recognize and celebrate organizations across Bonterra’s entire business.
