Year-Round Support for Nonprofit Boards

Text Box: Put the brochure plus application here.

BoardSource’s Board Support Program for Organizational Members provides self-guided, ongoing board development for your organization when and where you need it most.

It starts with BoardSource’s Board Self-Assessment (BSA), which enables your board to reflect on what it’s doing well and where it is more challenged. A confidential and comprehensive self-assessment, BoardSource’s tool asks your board to rate its own performance in several key areas, including

  • support of the organization’s mission
  • effectiveness in building, implementing, and monitoring strategy
  • oversight of the organization’s programs and finances
  • management, oversight, and support of the executive
  • building and protecting the organization’s funding and public image
  • board structure and composition
  • board meeting effectiveness

Armed with the insights from that assessment, your board is provided access to on-demand educational resources and technical assistance to support its board development goals. The program provides all board and staff with open access to BoardSource’s comprehensive member resources, including the following:

  • Monthly Member Education Webinars
  • Each month, BoardSource offers 101- and 201-level webinars that are free to all participants in the Board Support Program for Organizational Members. Many webinars are also available as recordings in BoardSource’s online member resource center.

  • Online Member Resource Center
  • BoardSource’s online member resource center hosts hundreds of topic papers and articles on a wide range of governance and board leadership topics. They are short and easily digestible in format, making them perfect for quick reference. Additionally, each week BoardSource distributes emails that include tools you can download and use right away, infographics that serve as thought pieces, and other valuable tips and topic papers.

  • Got Questions? We have answers.
  • As a part of the program, BoardSource provides guidance via an email hotline. Participants can send their question or issue and receive governance guidance from a BoardSource expert. Note: Information and guidance are provided with the understanding that BoardSource is not rendering professional opinions or legal advice. If such opinions are required, a CPA or licensed attorney should be sought.
