Training for Nonprofit Boards

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? The level of education and training for nonprofit boards.

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 and training for nonprofit boards, below you can find specific content that speaks directly to every board member, from the grassroots community group, to the international NGO.
