?

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?
Yes
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?
Yes
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?
Yes
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?
Yes
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?
Yes

?

This section is not a requirement for any of the GuideStar Nonprofit Profile participation levels - Bronze, Silver, or Gold. Instead, it is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff.

Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).

Population Served:
Female Youth/Adolescents (14 - 19 years)
Female Adults
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)

Program Description:

At the national and state levels, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation works to defend and protect reproductive rights through education and policy initiatives. Our signature programs include: Defending Choice Through our Defending Choice programs we combat threats in the courts, congress and in state legislatures across the country. We work to defeat anti-choice measures by educating lawmakers, the public, and our activists about the very real health implications of reproductive choice restrictions. We also mobilize our base (1) online and via traditional grassroots organizing (2) to help stem the tide of dangerous restrictions on abortion, birth control, and sex education. Proactive Prevention First We support a variety of legislative and other policy measures at the state and federal levels, designed to prevent unintended pregnancies and therefore reduce the need for abortion. Through our Prevention First initiative we work to advance commonsense measures including comprehensive sex education, reducing teen pregnancy, guaranteeing access to birth control and emergency contraception and supporting family planning services. Constituency Development We are working to develop and sustain an active and educated pro-choice constituency across the country. We combine standard forms of outreach and grassroots organizing with innovative online advocacy strategies that have recruited over one million Choice Action Network activists who use our online technologies to speak out in defense of choice and work to advance a proactive pro-choice agenda. Affiliate Development We work to expand reproductive rights through intensified work at the state and local level. Through a range of programs and services, we support our state affiliate network across the country with resources, trainings and opportunities for state-to-state collaboration.

Program Long-Term Success:

Annually, we produce "Who Decides? The Status of Women's Reproductive Health in the United States." Since 1991, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation has produced the pro-choice movement's most comprehensive report on the legal status of a woman's right to choose in the United States. Who Decides? provides summaries of state and federal laws related to abortion and birth control, tracks choice-related litigation and legislation nationwide, and provides analysis of legislative trends and key statutory enactments. The online version of "Who Decides?" includes all the material included in the annual print version, plus the State Bill Tracker (which summarizes key bills in each state and is updated daily), and complete statute and case summaries that are updated as new laws are enacted and cases are decided.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Seven in 10 Americans believe that abortion should be legal; we work to surface that silent majority and funnel it into strategic campaigns that shift the culture of shame around these issues and ensure an environment that guarantees every woman the right to informed and empowered choices.
For more in-depth information about this organization's impact, view their Charting Impact Report.
