Nonprofit Organizational Assessment

Nonprofit organizational assessments are available on a contract basis.

Organizational assessments provide valuable and objective information about organizational health, provide input for strategic planning and mission assessment activities, identify ways to improve the accomplishment of key organizational objectives, and organize and prioritize efforts at organizational improvement.

Organizational assessments include interviews and analysis among key internal and external stakeholders as well as a review of systems and practices. These are then compared with best practices in the field of nonprofit management and relevant subfields. Clients receive specific observations and recommendations on each of the following seven areas of organizational health:

  • Mission/Vision/Values
  • Board leadership
  • Executive leadership
  • Strategic management
  • Collaboration/alliance with other organizations
  • Financial leadership
  • Human Resources

In addition to prioritized recommendations in each of these areas, clients receive a prioritized and specific overall action list to improve organizational health.
