Your board of directors plays a pivotal role in your organization’s success. These volunteer leaders set a nonprofit’s strategic direction, manage its finances, and provide governance oversight.

Part of creating a culture of giving starts with board members serving as leaders who are committed to fundraising. That’s why it is invaluable for you to develop a clear vision of what you want your board to do—and give them the tools to meet those expectations.
