When it comes to governance, the board has a proven duty of care to manage the nonprofit’s affairs prudently. But that doesn't necessarily mean the board does all the work; instead, it means that good governance is critical to any organization's success. And for this success to be met, there must be core principles at play behind it.
What are these core principles of good governance for nonprofit organizations—and how can fundraisers better partner with their boards?
Join the conversation on this episode of the Philanthropy212 Podcast with Penny Cowden and Consultant and Adjunct Faculty at Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, Philip Purcell. Together, they talk about sound governance principles in not-for-profit organizations, how to work with the board of your organization on best practices, and the importance of continuous education.
