Focus on Human Resources

  • Patti Gillenwater, CEO of Elinvar, shows how intentionally building your board will ensure the sustainability of your nonprofit and the engagement of your board members.
  • Nonprofits are experiencing increasing CEO transitions as a result of retirement, resignations for other opportunities and board-prompted departures. Elinvar says, despite these challenges, nonprofits boards can follow a series of steps to fill the leadership spot that applies to all situations.
  • Service learning is a teaching and learning strategy that “integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities.” Today, it has reached classrooms from kindergarten through college and beyond. But it got off the ground in the early ‘90s, which means that Millennials and service learning came of age together.
