NEW’s affordable Board360™ assessment tool allows boards to assess their performance in five major areas – Board Operations, Strategic Planning, Resource Development, Oversight and Ambassadorship. 

After a decade of working with hundreds of nonprofit organizations, our governance experts recognized the need for a concise, affordable, intelligent tool for nonprofit boards to use to assess their performance. The result is Board360™.

When should a nonprofit board do an assessment?

  • Every three to five years to determine if they are supporting their organization’s mission.
  • Before major events such as a strategic plan, a fundraising campaign, down-sizing, collaboration, etc.
