Charity Inc.: Stand for your mission

Charity Inc.: Stand for your mission

Printer-friendly version

While so much advocacy and public education happens at the grass-roots level, I also encourage nonprofits to start with their boards to stand for their missions.

While boardrooms are traditionally filled with conversation about fiduciary oversight and fundraising, advocacy must be a central part of that conversation.

Nonprofits should start by initiating a conversation with their board to help members understand the real impact of their missions. Through a depth of knowledge, nonprofit boards can set a vision that is aspirational and can attain a wide variety of community changes. Board members who understand the work of a nonprofit make better advocates and champions for their organizations. They can envision a world changed by missions and assess and develop better strategies to implement programs.
