Nonprofits depend on board members for their expertise and knowledge along with their time and energy to lead their organization. However, many new board members of nonprofits don’t know what they are getting into when they accept the position. This leaves the organization vulnerable to potential legal issues. Your nonprofit must have a clear understanding of the board’s role, and an education program for new board members. This will ensure that everyone knows their responsibilities.

One of the most important duties of boards of non-profit organizations is to behave ethically. This requires the board to be honest with the public, donors, and the media. It also means the board must have basic policies in place to safeguard the nonprofit’s reputation including a whistleblower policy as well as a code of ethics.

Another crucial responsibility is the obligation of financial oversight. This means ensuring that all tax-related filings are completed correctly and on time. The board is also accountable for ensuring that the organisation’s programming and services are in line with the budget. The board should know all the programs, the people they are for and what their impact and outcomes are.

The board members should be the most prominent advocate of your nonprofit. This includes promoting the nonprofit through their personal networks, and engaging positively with media to portray the nonprofit in the most positive light possible. This advocacy will increase awareness of your nonprofit’s positive work, which will encourage growth and allow you to flourish.
