BoardSource is the leading organization in the United States that provides governance training, information, and leadership opportunities to increase the effectiveness of the nation's nonprofit agencies. In 2015-2016, BoardSource has two main goals: (1) to serve as the national voice for board leadership, encouraging leaders to embrace advocacy as a core strategy, become transparent, and promote diversity and inclusion in the boardroom; and (2) to ensure that nonprofit organizations have access to the support they need to build a strong and effective board by expanding their board development program, providing in-depth educational and advisory services, offering support through strategic relationships, and investing in its own human and technical capacity in order to expand its reach. A grant increase will support BoardSource's efforts to challenge nonprofit organizations and their boards to consider long-term collaboration as a strategy for greater impact.
