Description:

The Good as Gold Ceremony was established in 2009 to recognize the spirit and achievements of local volunteers and nonprofit organizations. The ceremony is a joint effort between the UIS Volunteer & Civic Engagement Center, the Junior League of Springfield, and the United Way of Central Illinois.

In 2014, the Good as Gold Awards Ceremony, for the first time, recognized Springfield businesses that support volunteer efforts and charitable giving via the Good as Gold Business Honor Roll. 

Each year, hundreds of community members take a moment and thank those who tirelessly give their time and talent to make Springfield a better place to live and thrive.

You can see an archive of past winners at the Good as Gold Wall of Distinction page.
