Not-For-Profit Governance Institute

The Not-For-Profit Governance Institute (NFPGI) is dedicated to promoting the highest standards of professionalism in the governance of not-for-profit organizations of all sizes. At the Not-For-Profit Governance Institute, we know that being a member of the Board of Directors of a not-for-profit organization is a challenging and important job - and we provide tools to help not-for-profit directors excel in the boardroom.


Our Governance Fundamentals Program is characterized by candid discussions in an interactive forum with board members and executive directors who are leading not-for-profit organizations through major opportunities, challenges, and crises. The objective of our Governance Fundamentals Program is to acquaint participants with their governance options, their implementation, best practices, and their consequences.

Our unique "Governance Fundamentals Program" is specifically designed for those who already are, or are about to become, members of the Board of Directors of a not-for-profit organization. Participants will gain leading edge strategies, frameworks, and best practices for making crucial Board decisions in an ever-changing environment.
