It’s important that you do a periodic review of all of your governance documents and policies. A BoardSource Governance Check-Up will help your board and organization ensure that it is operating in compliance with accepted governance practices and providing effective stewardship of the charitable assets of your organization.
Although the principles of good governance are similar in many ways to those for public charities, there are significant differences for many organizations. BoardSource adapted its core board self-assessment tool to meet the needs of foundations, schools, associations and credit unions.
