The Foundation Center-San Francisco’s 35th Anniversary Series
In celebration of the Foundation Center's 35 years of service in San Francisco, we are offering a series of programs designed to shine the spotlight on how philanthropy and fundraising have evolved in our region and what changes are happening in the field today.
What a makes a great nonprofit board? Alignment, the capacity to meet the organization's challenges, and the resources to create results; but how does a board generate these values?
Using Best Board Practice models we will discuss:
- The Board's Role and Responsibilities
- The individual Board Member's Role and Responsibilities
- The relationship between the board, the Executive Director and the organization
- Evaluations and assessments of board meetings, board members, and the board as a whole
- Board development: attracting new board members with capacity and resources
- Creating a culture of philanthropy on the board
Join us for an interactive session and take away practical tools to help you transfer what we cover in this workshop into a transformative discussion with your board.
