?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Program: Food Distribution - Disaster Relief (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
October 2013)

Budget:
$100,000
Category:
Food, Agriculture & Nutrition
Population Served:

Program Description:

We provide warm meals and compassion to those in need after a disaster strikes.

Program Long-Term Success:

As a group of BBQ cooks, enthusiasts and restauranteurs we can mobilize our equipment quickly and start cooking food with minimal needs of power as we are self contained.  We can cook large quantities of food on smokers from a parking lot or field.  We hope that this will improve disaster response time for other major organizations in the future.  As we grow though we will continue to fill the immediate need in communities like we have so far.

Program Short-Term Success:

We were founded after the Joplin, MO tornado and cooked and prepared over 120,000 meals in 11 days from a parking lot.  Since May of 2011 we have worked in 13 additional states and prepared over 191,000 additional meals through January of 2013.  We are a gap filler.  We fill a gap between major organizations that provide food getting in place and set up because we can mobilize and start cooking much quicker than they can.

Program Success Monitored by:

Number of meals served, number of supporters gained after an event and by additional donations received from the work we do.

Program Success Examples:

Grants from Farmers Insurance and Walmart to help improve our disaster response and reach through helping purchase equipment such as trailers and food preparation equipment.  Additional success is seen by the increase in the number of volunteers nationwide willing to help us when the need arises!
