The High Fives Foundation was selected as 2021 Nonprofit of the Year by Assemblywoman Megan Dahle (R-Bieber) for the First Assembly District.
She nominated this organization because of their inspiring mission to provide access to sports for people who may not have the opportunity to participate otherwise. This organization helps injured athletes and Veterans return to sports and outdoor activities. The High Fives Foundation aims to be the leader of education and recovery of life-altering injuries in outdoor sports.

This is the fifth year of the California Nonprofit of the Year initiative, and with nonprofits doing more than ever to help their communities throughout the COVID-19 crisis, their work should rightfully be celebrated.
“Nonprofits are often hidden in plain sight.” Said Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). “With one in every 14 California jobs being at a nonprofit, honoring a California Nonprofit of the Year shows that elected officials recognize and celebrate the good work they see nonprofits doing in their districts. We urge everyone to appreciate the collective impact of nonprofits in our communities.”
Assemblywoman Megan Dahle represents the 1st Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes portions of Butte and Placer counties, along with Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, and Siskiyou counties.
