Tools for Evaluating a Nonprofit Board of Directors

Check out our Board of Directors Box!


There are several effective tools for evaluating a nonprofit board of directors, including:


Board self-assessments: Board self-assessments involve board members completing a questionnaire or survey that assesses the board's performance in various areas, such as meeting attendance, strategic planning, financial oversight, and board composition. This approach provides a structured and systematic method for evaluating the board's effectiveness and identifying areas for improvement.


360-degree evaluations: 360-degree evaluations involve gathering feedback from a variety of stakeholders, including board members, staff, donors, volunteers, and other stakeholders. This approach provides a more comprehensive view of the board's performance and can identify blind spots that may not be apparent to board members.


Governance audits: Governance audits are a comprehensive review of the nonprofit's governance practices and policies. These audits may be conducted internally or by an external consultant and can include a review of board composition, policies and procedures, financial management, strategic planning, and risk management.


Expert assessments: Expert assessments involve engaging an external consultant or advisor with expertise in nonprofit governance to evaluate the board's effectiveness. These assessments may include a review of board composition, policies and procedures, financial management, strategic planning, and risk management, as well as interviews with board members and staff.


Ultimately, the best tool for evaluating a nonprofit board of directors will depend on the specific needs and circumstances of the organization. It may be beneficial to use a combination of tools to provide a comprehensive evaluation of the board's effectiveness.
