Your personal guide to building a nonprofit board of directors so good that even Fortune 500 companies will look on in envy, based on proven strategies and real-world examples


What's holding your nonprofit back? Is it a lack of funding? A lack of expertise? Internal conflict? Or simply not knowing where to start?


These problems are common to nonprofits, and there's one simple solution to almost all of them: a strong board of directors.


A good board of directors will support your nonprofit, resolve conflict, and give you a clear path forward.


But setting up a solid board of directors isn't something that just happens-it requires strategic thinking, proactive outreach, careful negotiation, and plenty of business know-how. The most successful nonprofits have this. Do you?


Written by James Ruell, who has served as Director and Vice-Treasurer of an award-winning charity, Nonprofit Board Success gives practical advice and proven techniques for building a top-notch board of directors-one that will make you the envy of CEOs everywhere.


In this book, you'll learn:


  • What a board is and why you need it
  • What a board does and doesn't do + how to spot helpful and unhelpful practices
  • Where to look for board members and how to recruit them
  • The role of board members in fundraising and governance
  • How the most successful nonprofits utilize their boards
  • How to deal with conflict and toxic situations among your board members
  • How to turn your board of directors from a simple governance group to a strategic tool that supports your vision


And much more.


In addition to setting up and managing a board of directors, you'll become familiar with crucial nonprofit concepts, such as:


  • Rules of order, bylaws, and governance
  • Fundraising pitfalls and best practices
  • Audits and financial accountability


This book will help first-time board members better understand their roles and responsibilities. It's a great introduction to the world of nonprofit governance, backed by real-world examples from nonprofits like Boy Scouts of America, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and the Smithsonian Institute.


Whether you're a nonprofit leader or a new board member, this book will help you gain a solid picture of how a board of directors fits in with nonprofit leadership, and how to set your board-and your organization-up for success.
