— “The Wake Up Call”

The nonprofit sector faces unprecedented challenges including changes in tax laws, new funding models, and aging leadership.

“The Wake Up Call” provides a road map for nonprofits that want to navigate these challenges. Learn what leadership styles are dominant at nonprofits and why some are more effective than others. Learn what works (and what doesn’t) in fundraising, strategic planning, and succession planning. See how your nonprofit stacks up against the data, and learn how to build a stronger culture of philanthropy across your organization.

Boardable partnered with Bloomerang, Donor Search, and Concord Leadership Group to fund this study on nonprofit leadership. As we help nonprofit boards work more effectively and efficiently, we also want to educate and inform them on best practices that will help them navigate the current and future challenges they face.
