When your organization welcomes new board members, you know you need to share about your foundation, its programs, and what it means to serve on a board. But where to begin? Some of your new trustees may be family members who’ve grown up hearing about the foundation. Others may be experts who specialize in your funding area.

This primer guides you through the process of planning and implementing a board orientation. It covers topics including:
  • Welcoming new trustees
  • Designing the orientation event
  • Creating briefing materials
  • Choosing orientation topics
  • Planning for ongoing orientation
With this resource, you can plan an orientation and ongoing training programs that give new trustees the tools they need to become strong and informed foundation board members that work cohesively toward the foundation’s mission.
