Nonprofit leaders can increase their board of directors’ understanding of the organization’s operations, fundraising, and programs by putting together a dashboard on a monthly or quarterly basis.
A dashboard is made up of charts, graphs, and leader boards. It can help paint the overall picture of your operations:
- It can help nonprofit boards understand where program revenue comes from and what percent of the operating budget it encompasses
- It can tell the story of your programs with graphs to show what percent of the community you serve
- It can show how successful a fundraiser is with charts for income and expense
- It can provide an easy way to review the financials, operations, and investments for your organization
There are many ways to use a dashboard. Here are some examples.
