More than 1,000 nonprofit organizations have used a BoardSource
Board Self-Assessment in the past 10 years.
Here’s what your peers are saying about their experience.



“I like that the board can do the assessment online and the information is compiled in a succinct way to present to the board upon completion. It is easy for board members to complete. The assessment helps the board understand where improvements can be made and work to make improvements in that area. For us, it is fundraising. It puts the issue front and center with them.”
— Jackie Mayo, HomeSource East Tennessee
