Building a Better Board | Futurewise

Posted by Zach Grossnickle

When Futurewise joined SVP as Investee, the organization asked for help in evaluating their board structure. SVP connected Partner Sherri Wolson with Futurewise to help navigate the dynamics of reinvigorating the make-up of their board of directors. The focus of this project was to improve board engagement and increase diverse perspectives.

Sherri helped evaluate and compare board term limit options with similar organizations. With this support, Futurewise adopted term limits, transition planning, and an on-boarding plan for their board. Sherri honed in on a path forward for Futurewise that included 3-year terms and a succession plan for board officers. With their new board strategy, Futurewise identified and selected five new individuals to join their board!

Strong nonprofits deliver better results.

It’s that simple. Things like sound financial systems and sound internal practices can mean the difference in building a thriving and equitable future for all. That’s why SVP does more than give away money. We work with nonprofits for several years, strengthening all the behind-the-scenes systems that will help take their work to the next level. Over the last year, Partners and consultants collaborated with SVP Investees on nearly 100 projects from communications to strategic planning to website development.
