Board members serve a critical governance role for nonprofits by ensuring the organization operates in accordance with its bylaws and mission. They also strengthen the financial vitality of the nonprofit by personally making gifts and helping secure contributions from others.
McDonald Schaefer will assess your current board effectiveness and recommend ways to improve it by reviewing governing bylaws; committee structure; term limits; board evaluation processes; board handbook, orientation materials; and board communications plans. We can also help expand the board by defining the ideal profile of new board members; identifying and evaluating candidates in a profile matrix; engaging candidates; recruiting new members; and effectively orienting them to serve well in their new role.
A strong board will directly impact your organization’s capacity for improved fund development. We can help your board better understand and improve its fund development role.
