The Effective Not-for-Profit Board: A value-driving force

Get practical assistance in meeting governance requirements


This third edition of The Effective Not-for-Profit Board discusses NPO governance within the current regulatory and stakeholder environment. It focuses on the board of directors, since it is the board that bears the ultimate responsibility for the stewardship of an organization. This handbook covers the following topics:
  • The meaning of good governance, the Deloitte Governance Framework and a discussion of each element of this
  • Challenges specific to NPOs and some action steps to consider when addressing these
  • Some popular Deloitte tools to assist boards in discharging their responsibilities

Since the first release in 1995, the Governance handbook has become a well-known resource for the Canadian NPO industry, with hundreds of copies distributed to large and small organizations in every province.
