How nonprofits and board members can respond to COVID-19

 

The COVID-19 pandemic is creating unique and unforeseen challenges for nonprofit leaders and the people and communities we serve. As the situation rapidly changes, the board needs to provide steady and adaptive leadership in partnership with and in support of the CEO.

BoardSource is committed to supporting board and staff leaders during these uncertain times. Based on questions we’ve received from nonprofits, we have compiled a list of responses and accompanying resources to address some of the most common issues facing our community.
