Foundations and corporations play a critical role in the nonprofit sector through funding, corporate social responsibility programs, and by supporting nonprofit leaders.
BoardSource provides foundations with the opportunity to take a leadership role in supporting nonprofit organizational success — for their grantees and foundations themselves. We celebrate and support the critical role that foundations play in strengthening board leadership in the following ways:
- Foundations can work to build the effectiveness of their grantees’ boards by providing them with programs and resources to strengthen their leadership that are included in BoardSource’s foundation partnership program.
- Foundations can model the importance of thoughtful and strategic board leadership through their own board’s leadership and governance practices. Learn more about how BoardSource supports exceptional foundation governance.
Demonstrating your company’s commitment to exceptional leadership and good governance in the social sector is taking a leadership role in promoting and supporting strong and effective nonprofit board service.

- Corporations partner with BoardSource to design, build, and implement nonprofit board service programs to meet each company’s specific needs.
- Corporations can receive support for new and experienced board leaders through the broad set of resources included in BoardSource’s corporate partnership program.
