When it comes to governance, the board has a proven duty of care to manage the nonprofit’s affairs prudently. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the board does all the work; instead, it means that good governance is critical to any organization’s success. And for this success to be met, there must be core principles at play behind it.

What are these core principles of good governance for nonprofit organizations—and how can fundraisers better partner with their boards?
