Nonprofit Board Evaluations and Nonprofit Board Governance

The CBE Not-For-Profit (NFP) Survey is similar to the CBE Board Evaluation but designed specifically for a nonprofit organization's board. 

Nonprofit Board Governance Starts with Evaluation

This questionnaire examines a nonprofit board’s mission, vision, financial oversight, conflict of interest, ethics, highlighting the board’s strengths, weaknesses, and operational effectiveness. The evaluation integrates Form 990 elements, meaning the board is fulfillling its oversight requirements.

As with all the CBE questionnaires, evaluations, and training tools, CBE can simply convert your organization's existing materials to a more flexible and efficient governance platform or work with your governance professionals to design a new questionnaire closely tailored to the unique aspects of your business.

How It Works

CBE is also available to meet with the client to present the report in person and for additional consulting services.


    CBE’s Board Assessment covers critical areas of the Board's functions in a comprehensive questionnaire where each member is asked to rate the Board on a ten-point scale.

    The remaining questions are open-ended questions where the Board members can freely share their opinion on the Board's overall performance.

    The result of the survey is a high-value, written report that gives the Board the opportunity to assess its performance, examine compliance and assay critical Board functions.

    The report is presented to a Board-designated representative
