Are you excited to recruit, nominate, and approve new board members but aren’t quite sure what to include in the “board orientation” process? These board members often bring new energy, ideas, passion, and skills to your organization, but without an effective orientation process, they won’t be equipped or empowered to take action.

It is your existing board’s job to provide training and mentorship opportunities so that all of that potential can be explored and put to good use! Funding for Good has created this 1-hour online training to simplify the process. Walk away with tips, tools, and templates so you can customize a board orientation for the leaders in your organization today.
