Nonprofit organizations are under all different kinds of stress as a result of COVID-19. There are the usual suspects: financial pressure after experiencing a severe drop in fundraising dollars flowing into the organization. There's also programmatic stress, given an extreme increase in the programmatic demands placed on the nonprofit sector.

Jennie Boden believes that nonprofits need governance now more than ever—especially if they wish to come out of these difficult times alive. According to Jennie, organizations need a board to steer and direct the ship constructively while influencing stakeholders to move things forward. What exactly should the board be doing? 

Listen to this episode of the Philanthropy212 podcast with Penny Cowden to learn about governance matters from Jennie Boden of Quantum Governance, L3C. She speaks about the governing board's responsibilities, the board's role in fundraising, effective governance models, and more.
