10 Things Every New Foundation Board Member Should Know

This publication is designed as a basic guidebook for the new foundation board member, providing an introduction to tools and knowledge essential in the first years of service on the board. While it is not a substitute for legal, financial or other professional advice, it will help inform you about the responsibilities that accompany board service.

This tool was developed through a survey of current foundation board members and through interviews with board and staff at foundations in the U.S. and Canada.
