What does a Nonprofit Board of Directors do?

The Board is the governance pillar of the organization, where-as Executive Directors focus on management and the Staff on implementation.

The Board’s Role in Fundraising
Because the PCC’s programs are so capital intensive, we need a fundraising Board. Each member is asked to give AND get an amount that they would personally consider significant over the course of their board term. There are several ways that members can fundraise, so they must find the role in which they are most comfortable and effective.
The contribution is referred to as a “Give AND Get” because we want people to give what is a significant (by their own definition) contribution for them, AND then fundraise. This isn’t about getting the most money from each board member, but instead it is about securing the PCC’s future by building a donor base that can support the organization.
