Nonprofit Board Training

Training for Nonprofit Boards

Education and training for nonprofit boards make them more effective.

Why? One of the best things about nonprofits is that anyone can be on their board. One of the worst things about nonprofits is that anyone can be on their board. What make the difference? Their level of training and education.

Effective boards get education and training on their duties and responsibilities. They learn that their job starts with setting the mission and addressing strategic concerns. They find that they hold the legal and financial accountability. Educated boards know that their membership is more than a name on a page and a face at the event. It's a public trust.

While just about every video, podcast, eBook and worksheet on Nonprofit.Courses can serve as education for your board, below you can find specific content that speaks directly to every board member, from the grassroots community group, to the international NGO.

It's important to remember that your board is part of your nonprofit, it is your nonprofit. Your board creates the mission, sets the policies, fund the organization, monitors the spending, advocates for your cause, determines the leadership, and if it needs to, closes your nonprofit, too. But too many board members don't understand their role, or think that their job is to show up, smile and raise their hand when asked for a vote. To be successful, you need an engaged board.

That's why training for nonprofit board members isn't optional. It's essential.
