Helping Nonprofit Boards Achieve Their Performance Potential

November 16, 2010 was known as “Give to the Max Day” – a highly publicized fundraising event created to call to action Minnesotans for support of their local charities. This “Great Minnesota Give Together” was declared a success when nearly 42,600 donors raised more than $10,000,000 for community nonprofit organizations. Because of the unprecedented generosity of these thousands of donors, millions of dollars will be invested in nonprofits to improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans.

The success of “Give to the Max Day” is significant in light of today’s economic environment when the need for the services that nonprofit organizations provide has steadily increased. This is clearly a time when the leadership of nonprofits must rise up and strategically advance their organizations to the next level in order to successfully fulfill their mission and achieve their vision.

To gain further insight into how boards operate, their best practices and their challenges, we have designed a nonprofit performance survey and invite anyone who has ever served on a nonprofit board (past or present) and executive leaders from the nonprofit community to participate. Responses will be compiled and added to a framework to help boards attain higher performance. All responses are anonymous. Take survey now.

At the end of the survey, if you provide your email address we will share summarized results with you. Feel free to forward this survey to other board chairs, members and management leaders within the nonprofit community.

Thank you in advance for your participation. Together we can help nonprofit boards and the organizations supported by “Give to the Max Day” achieve their full performance potential.
