A nonprofit’s work exists within a larger cause and context of policies and regulations, circumstances, individuals, organizations, and agencies that affect the work.

Board members are community leaders sharing their knowledge, experiences, and connections with the organization. Supported by the public, nonprofits operate for the public’s benefit and board members are key organizational stewards. Board members serve as ambassadors and advocates for their organization’s cause.
