Disclaimer:  The Board Doctor’s webinar products include a recording of the webinar, the slide deck, and additional handouts.  In some cases, the handouts are BoardSource-created documents that are available at for free.  The Board Doctor is not reselling BoardSource materials but is making them available as a convenience to our customers because they were referred to during the webinar itself.

Web-Based Resources for Small Nonprofit Organizations

None of us is in this alone! The nonprofit sector is chock full of organizations that provide “capacity building” services, resources and information that help organizations get better. Some, like BoardSource and the National Council of Nonprofits, are generalized and provide information on a wide variety of topics.  Others, like #GivingTuesday or the Points of Light Foundation, are more specialized.  Cathy has a compiled a list of more than 50 such organizations, complete with descriptions and web addresses.

Bring The Board Doctor into Your (Virtual) Boardroom
