Creating and sustaining a good governance framework is one of the most complex challenges facing non-profits. Governments and other stakeholders want continuously clear access to information about how well their funds are being managed to support the health and growth of their community.
Words like "transparency" and "accountability' are on everyone's lips.
WindSea's services make it easier to build and maintain good governance in your non-profit: Understanding legislative and regulatory requirements; Leading and overseeing operations; Engaging stakeholders; Advancing the organization's mission and optimizing its overall potential to improve the quality of life for people in community.
Increasingly, funders look to non-profit leadership to deliver programs and services in their communities. We design sustainable governance frameworks for navigating the turbulence in the social, political, economic and regulatory environment.
Volunteer boards often redirect financial resources to meet stakeholders and funders expectations. We help leaders understand the implications of each wind shift, how to adjust the sails i.e. elements of good governance and what to report about the impact of each action.
Evaluation is the key to strategic management. As conditions change and evolve, non-profit leadership needs to update strategy and often renew their governance model. We help leaders realistically measure and manage performance and implement improvements.
Resilient non-profits that make measurable impact in their communities.
Informed by over four decades of first-hand experience in non-profit organizations, we know how to simplify the work of the board, enabling directors and committees to navigate shoals, and stay on course to deliver on their mission and maintain good governance. We've embedded this knowledge in WindSea's tools, workshops and services.
