BoardSource works closely with foundation boards and trustees to support strong and effective governance and board leadership, which we believe is important for two reasons:
Guidance & Strategy
Just like the boards of other nonprofit organizations, foundation boards play an instrumental leadership role in guiding the overall strategy, selecting and supporting executive leaders, and providing important fiduciary oversight.
Leadership & Support
As institutions that hold influence and authority within the social sector, foundations that model strong board leadership and governance are sending a powerful signal about the importance of effective leadership to their grantees and the nonprofit sector.
