Case Study Sector
These three mini case studies, excerpted from the book Foundation Building Sourcebook: A Practitioners Guide Based upon Experience from Africa, Asia, and Latin America, examine issues around recruiting and developing an effective board. The first two examples explore some issues on building a board such as a board that reflects the various donor and beneficiary constituencies of the foundation and a board structure that can enable the foundation to function effectively. The third case discusses articles of a foundation’s bylaws that help to define the responsibilities of the board and the contents and logistics of board meetings.
