 BUILD A BETTER BOARD

An incredibly affordable way to develop your board and ensure good governance, the Better Board Toolkit™ from Advanced Nonprofit Solutions includes bylaws, board policy manual, board member handbook and so much more!

For a one time investment of $999 you get….

 

1/ BYLAWS

Bylaws are a set of legal and foundational policies which govern your organization’s board and outline core operating procedures. Bylaws determine how board members are elected, the powers of board officers, the role of your Executive Director and other core policies. The Better Board Toolkit includes writing your bylaws or reviewing and revising your existing bylaws.

2/ BOARD POLICY MANUAL

Nonprofit boards exercise their authority primarily by adopting policies that everyone in the organization must follow. These policies cover topics ranging from: financial management, hiring and payroll, nondiscrimination, sexual harassment, social media use, etc. The Better Board Toolkit includes a complete codified board policy manual consisting of your existing board policies plus new polices we recommend to you.

3/ BOARD MEMBER HANDBOOK

Unfortunately, many nonprofit organizations have no formal process for assimilating new board members to the organization. The Better Board Toolkit solves this problem ! Included is our board member handbook customized and tailored to your organization. The handbook features chapters on your organization and its history, mission and programs, the responsibilities of a board member, financial management and more!

4/ BOARD MEMBER FUNDRAISING PLAN TEMPLATE

What’s your board most dreaded responsibility? Fundraising! We hear this all the time. The Better Board Toolkit includes an individual board member fundraising plan template to equip every board member with the tools needed to raise money with confident. Our board member fundraising template is incredibly user friendly and, once completed, will guide each individual board member as they identify prospective donors within their circle, conduct “the ask” and make new friends for your nonprofit.

5/ BOARD RECRUITMENT & DIVERSITY PLAN

Who do you need on your board? Someone with fundraising experience? An accountant or lawyer? Or just any willing soul? Our toolkit helps you answer this question! The Better Board Toolkit will ensure a consistent flow of talented, diverse and passionate board members. We’ll start with analyzing the skill, talent and demographics of your current board; identifying any many missing demographics or skill sets; anticipating future needs and providing a comprehensive recruitment and diversity plan.

6/ BOARD WORK PLAN & SELF EVALUATION TOOL

It’s said that those who fail to plan- plan to fail. So why do most nonprofit boards trek on month after month with no year round work plan? The Better Board Toolkit includes a custom board work plan that outlines the responsibilities of your specific board and schedules its work across 12 months. Included in your board’s annual to-do list should be a self evaluation. The Better Board Toolkit includes a board self evaluation tool that each board member will use to rate and critique the work and progress of the board as a whole.

What is the Better Board Toolkit™?

The “toolkit” is a package of services designed to develop, strengthen and professionalize your board. We know your board members are awesome but every board should strive to do better and grow stronger. With the 6 tools included in the toolkit your board will be more organized, professional, efficient, intentional and strategic in their decisions and more confident when raising money.

How does the toolkit work?
