Charity board health check tool launched
A new online health check has been launched specifically for boards of charitable organisations, designed to help them improve their effectiveness, boost performance, and better focus on their core purpose.
The Board Health Check was developed and launched by Tanarra Philanthropic Advisors (TPA), a probono enterprise of the Tanarra alternative asset investment group.
It contains information specific to charity boards, is complimentary and is believed to be the first resource of its kind in Australia.
It can be used by Australian charities or not-for-profits, takes around 15 minutes to complete and will help organisations uncover their key strengths, areas in need of improvement and potential issues with director alignment.
Governance Institute of Australia is proud to have assisted with the development of the Board Health Check, providing input on core topics contained in the new resource.
Governance Institute’s General Manager Membership and Engagement, Leon Cox said the tool will allow charities to better focus on their core purpose.
“To have a complimentary tool available to help charities govern their own entities means more time and resources can be directed into their own purpose and by extension better outcomes for society,” Mr Cox said.
