Role of Advisory Board in a Nonprofit.

A nonprofit seeks community members who are willing to advise the nonprofit, particularly those with expertise in areas that the nonprofit’s staff or governing board members do not have. Nonprofits are required by law to have governing boards, but not advisory boards.

An advisory board functions like a committee of the formal board but without legal responsibilities. Formed to give advice and recommendations to a nonprofit’s governing board and management, an Advisory Board works toward a specific goals like fund raising, technical assistance, assessment of a program’s impact and serving as a public advocate for the organization.
