“Our experience EXCEEDED my expectations, and I felt the time was an excellent investment in our understanding, our relationship as a board, and in preparation for this stage of our growth! Our facilitator did an outstanding job, and I’m positively giddy with anticipation for our next steps!”
-Sally Power, Executive Director, Treasure House Fashions

BoardsWork! can help you:

  • Clarify board roles and responsibilities
  • Sharpen strategic thinking and oversight
  • Streamline policies and procedures
  • Develop sound fundraising strategies

Additionally, we train service-minded individuals in effective nonprofit governance through a full day of learning and match them to your board through customized placement. Your organization becomes better equipped to carry out its mission with new, diverse individuals and skill sets. And the community you serve becomes stronger when these individuals become social leaders and advocates for your purpose.

By participating in BoardsWork!, nonprofit organizations receive:

  • Individualized governance assessment
  • Customized, board retreat
  • At least one newly trained board member

Board members of participating BoardsWork! nonprofits receive discounts on nonprofit management classes and ongoing governance support from CCCE.

NOTE: BoardsWork! primarily serves nonprofit organizations in Allegheny County. If your nonprofit regularly operates outside of this region, contact us to discuss the details of potential participation in this program.
