Read Adrian Sargeant’s article in Summer 2013 Nonprofit Quarterly. “Donor Retention: What Do We Know and What Can We Do about it.” And then do it!

Dip into the Agitator series on Donor Retention. Embrace that, too!

Compare your board’s performance to Board Source’s  Nonprofit Governance Index 2012. Yes, it was published in September 2012. But refresh your memory!

Now take a look at NPQ‘s online article by Rob Meiksins, “Is Dr. King’s Dream Realized? Not on Boards.”

Check out “Missing Pieces: Women and Minorities on Fortune 500 Boards.”

And then, read Delia Ephron’s 09-07-13 New York Times piece, “You Can’t Have It All, but You Can Have Cake.” A commentary on having it all (which may be a particularly American perspective).
