About Our Company
Boardable was founded by nonprofit founders to serve community nonprofits. Our mission is to dramatically improve the experience of serving on a board of directors. We seek to tame the chaos! What we have built is both a software platform and a purpose-driven company that seeks to serve those who serve their communities.
Want your nonprofit to execute its strategy as effectively as possible? Then your leaders need administrative support. Otherwise, they spend time managing emails and spreadsheets instead of actually leading. Simone Joyaux looks at why insufficient support is an all-too-common problem, and what nonprofits can do to correct it.
Serving on a nonprofit board is often regarded as the ultimate form of volunteering, and it's one that can spur career growth through networking and building skills. But what if you can't commit to serving on a board? You can still use volunteering to accelerate your career, so long as you focus on 1) what you're passionate about, and 2) take on responsibilities just outside of your comfort zone. Kolby McElvain shares how her passion for design and volunteering led her to becoming president of AIGA Indianapolis.
For early-career fundraisers and even seasoned nonprofit professionals, asking for a donation can feel stressful. Maybe it's the first ask you've ever made, maybe you're gearing up to make your biggest ask yet, or maybe it's your first time asking a high-profile donor. Fundraising expert Joe Garecht gives you simple, effective tips for preparing and delivering your ask.
