Board Basics

A nonprofit’s board of directors is responsible for defining the organization’s mission and for providing overall leadership and strategic direction to the organization. Each nonprofit board should:

  1. actively set policy and ensure that the organization has adequate resources to carry out its mission;
  2. provide direct oversight and direction for the executive director and be responsible for evaluating his/her performance; and
  3. evaluate its own effectiveness as a governing body, as a group of volunteers, and as representatives of the community in upholding the public interest served by the organization.
