The Council on Foundations, in collaboration with BoardSource, has produced an easy-to-use guide for new foundation board members. This publication is designed as a basic guide for new foundation board members, providing an introduction to tools and knowledge essential in your first years of service on the board of a foundation. The guide contains information, advice, vetted best practices, and sets of questions a new board member might ask in an orientation or as their service on the board begins.
