Nonprofit boards can get so focused on their purpose that they forget to work on the structure that allows them to achieve it. Developing that structure takes two things: solid governance systems and a strong board to support it. Magpie can help nonprofits accomplish their goals with better governance.
- Organization documents for legal review
- Governance policies and documents
- Mission statements
- Board training on governance and meeting best practices
- Strategic planning sessions
- Job descriptions and polices for staff
What Our Nonprofit Clients Say
After 35 years of operation, Intermountain Opera Bozeman was fortunate enough to engage the services of Deborah McAtee to assist in updating and generating our governance documents. Deborah was incredibly diligent and patient with us as she unraveled decades of information and changes. Deborah created a Board Handbook covering responsibilities, policies and procedures that make us compliant with all of the new 990 requirements. All of the documents were created for easy updating as our organization continues to grow, with easy-to-follow annual review processes. As a non-profit in this time of government scrutiny, it is a great relief to have proper policies and documentation processes established.
Magpie has been such a benefit to Thrive over the past couple of years! They have reduced paid staff time on newsletters enabling our staff to work more on providing direct services to children and families. They have helped us establish more of a professional presence in our materials. Connecting with people is at the heart of Thrive’s mission and Magpie has enabled us to do that through writing. Magpie communicates our mission more clearly, concisely and accurately to our donors, volunteers, and participants. This communication enhances our ability to engage people with our programs increasing participation, volunteerism, and fundraising capabilities. Their services are invaluable to our organization.
