Assess Your Board

The following statistics are based on a BoardSource Report (2007):
  • Only 5% of nonprofits list fund raising as a "board strength"
  • Nearly 50% of nonprofit board members are 50-64 years old
  • 92% of boards have an external financial audit
  • 87% of nonprofit organizations made governance policy changes
  • 70% of surveyed nonprofits established a policy for board members to review the IRS Form 990

So where do you stand?

Do you even know?


The danger zone is not when you know that you are wrong.  The danger zone is when you do not know if you are wrong.  That's where the real danger lies for any nonprofit board of directors.

You need to know your challenges to face your challenges.  If you do not know them, how do you plan on facing them? Use a proven assessment tool.  Work with nonprofit consultants or business development specialists/ analysts.

Get informed on what you need to get your board back on track.
