Management Team

The management team and organizational structure is extremely important for a nonprofit. Describe your team and board members’ backgrounds and expertise. Talk about your advisory board if you have one. Explain the different levels of management, financial sponsors, and other key players. Draw an organizational chart that shows the different chains of command and estimate your current and future staffing needs.

With regards to a Board of Directors or Board of Advisors, creating such a board is advisable for nonprofits. Board members can not only provide guidance and experience, but they are generally extremely helpful in the fundraising process.
