If you haven’t already, we hope you’ll check out this free library of resources that are designed to help nonprofit professionals establish and champion diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusivity (DEAI) initiatives within their organizations.
In this library, you’ll find:
- Essential DEAI Reading for Nonprofits
- Sample Policies, Templates, and Tools
- Webinars on Nonprofit Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
- Peer Groups for People of Color in the Nonprofit Sector
- Agencies Focusing on DEAI
- Additional Curated Lists and Resources
- For Event Organizers
- Speaker Directory
Those resources cover a variety of topics, but we’ve recently heard from fundraisers that boards are on their minds. They want to know how to build them, how to get board members to engage in their nonprofit’s mission, how to empower those board members to fundraise effectively, and more.
If this is something you’re thinking about in 2023, we hope these resources will support you and your team as you work to build the board your nonprofit deserves.
