Board Basics: What Organizations Need from Board Members

Different nonprofits will have different expectations of 
board members based on their size, mission, or particular challenges. Understanding what an organization needs will help you match your motives, interests, time commitments, and personal goals to that organization so that you can make a valuable contribution.

Organizations discussed include: foundations; advocacy groups; professional associations; all-volunteer organizations (AVOs); arts and cultural organizations; hospitals; colleges and universities; alumni organizations; supporting organizations; chapters of federated organizations; international, national, regional, or local organizations; and big budget or small budget organizations.
