2015-2016 NACD Nonprofit Governance Survey

In Brief: The 2015–2016 NACD Nonprofit Governance Survey presents findings from our annual questionnaire that was in the field from March through May 2015. It offers new insight on matters relevant to nonprofit organizations, such as fundraising and cyber-risk oversight. Reports containing data from our public and private company governance surveys are published separately (see “Related Material” below). 

How boards can use this resource:

  • Benchmark your board’s strategic priorities;
  • Identify areas for improvement in current governance practices, including board composition, structure, director recruitment, and cyber-risk oversight; and
  • Compare and contrast board compensation components.

Relevant audiences: Board members and executives of nonprofit organizations
