?

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?

Evidence of Impact

St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital has been focusing on children suffering from cancer for years and has become a well-known group among the public.

Huge Growth
Market share growth. Other
Dedicated to Children
It is one of the most popular and successful children's cancer centers, and I make this recommendation because the hospital is dedicated only to children. Foundation Professional
Clearly one of the best organizations in the area of pediatric cancer. Other

Organizational Strengths

The major strengths of this hospital are its caring and dedicated staff and its effective use of marketing techniques, according to experts.

Effective Marketing
They have strong marketing and fundraising. Other
Caring Staff
This hospital has very caring and nurturing staff in addition to a strong operations program which helps the hospital run smoothly while giving each child individual care. It also has strong marketing skills which is clear because of the many advertisement that are played on television and the radio and are seen in magazines. Foundation Professional

Areas for Improvement

The main area of improvement for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital is in its capacity--it could expand to provide services to more children.

Greater Capacity
The hospital could expand so it could take in more children and help families in paying for treatment or bringing them in from out of town so their children could get treatment. Foundation Professional
Inaccurate Advertising
SJCRH is the best known pediatric oncology program in the country, but in terms of past and current contributions and leaders, they are far from the best. They have a huge budget and staff for PR and fundraising, and many of their ads are misleading or even completely inaccurate. It is hard to compete against them without sounding like sour grapes, but they portray themselves as leading the way for the rest of us, when this is very far from the truth. They do have some good people and have made some contributions, but not in proportion to their budget or their hyperbole. Researcher and Faculty
