Established in 1988 to address nonprofit sector needs, BoardSource focuses its mission on advancing the public good by building exceptional nonprofit boards and inspiring board service through hundreds of widely used publications, training programs, assessment services, consulting and the annual BoardSource Leadership Forum. A bi-annual leadership initiative, the BoardSource Nonprofit Governance Index, is the only large-scale, cross-sector governance survey that includes responses from both board members and executive staff; it collects responses from more than 1,300 nonprofit organizations including higher education institutions. BoardSource’s customizable, solutions-oriented expertise has enabled boards to reimagine their roles and align their practices with industry standards and to optimally drive organizational performance through engagement around mission objectives and financial outcomes.
“At BoardSource, we are deeply committed to ensuring that nonprofit organizations have access to board leadership resources and consulting services that are rooted in best practice. It is for that reason we are so pleased to have the opportunity to work more closely with organizations like The Napa Group who are committed to strengthening nonprofit governance and leadership,” said Anne Wallestad, president & CEO of BoardSource.
