Training for Nonprofit Boards: Lead for Impact

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.

Don't forget to check out Nonprofit Board Training: The Ultimate Guide [& Resources] and the Nonprofit.Courses Select course on Nonprofit Board and Volunteer Development

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.

Get each board member started right! Enroll them in the Nonprofit Skills: Board Fundamentals Certificate, today!

The Nonprofit Skills Board Fundamentals Certificate provides learners with the critical knowledge and skills required to serve on a nonprofit board.

The content covers key topics including legal obligations, financial management, strategic planning, public communication, fundraising, leadership oversight, and measuring progress. Each self-paced course includes interactive activities, case studies, readings, and videos with advice from experts in the field. Learners will complete the certificate with a comprehensive understanding of how nonprofit board members effectively meet the needs of their organization.

Kickoff your grantwriting right by taking the Grant Writing Skills Suite.

This two-course bundle offers the introductory through intermediate skills needed for those involved in gaining funding for any nonprofit organization's mission.

Strategic grant writing aligns the needs of a nonprofit with funding sources, whether those sources are foundations, government agencies, corporations, or individuals. The first course in this bundle, Introduction to Grant Writing, offers a guide to the basics of grant writing. The course explores the relationship between grant writing and an organization's strategy for fundraising. It also outlines the six stages of grant writing and highlights grant writing best practices.

Advanced Grant Writing, the second course in this bundle, challenges learners to push those newly acquired grant writing skills to the next level, challenging learners to ask iterative questions in order to sharpen and refine each grant proposal and push it to the top of the pack. By looking closely at how a logic model can shore up a proposal at each key stage, this course will demonstrate how to push planning, evaluation, and budgeting from good to great.

Nonprofit Humor

Two cartoon women holding a Nonprofit Humor Sign

Yes, there is nonprofit humor!

If you're in the nonprofit sector, sometimes (okay, a LOT of times) you need a laugh - some nonprofit humor!

Why? You need nonprofit humor because nonprofit work is stressful.

  • Children who don't have enough food.
  • Patients with heartbreaking diagnosis.
  • Donors  with unreasonable demands.

Need I go on?

Sometimes you need to just have to laugh, because otherwise you’d cry, like…

  • When you can't count how many times you need to explain to a volunteer that even though you're called a "nonprofit," that yes, you can have a “profit” at year’s end. It’s healthy, and called a surplus.
  • When your board takes so much time to make a simple decision.
  • Or the number of times you heard “let’s put on a show!” to solve your financial woes.

These nonprofit humor videos are here to give you some relief... maybe make you think... and of course, to make you laugh - if not at the situation, then the absurdity of why anything that you see on the screen could actually happen in real life.

Enjoy the videos below, and let us know if you find more like them!
