June Bradham's research into what makes Board members truly engaged found that an organization's whose leadership, staff, and Board members are aligned is likely to be more successful than one that does not enjoy this alignment.
In order to actually measure this degree of harmony among all fundraising entities, we have developed the AlignMint questionnaire. Each of the three audiences is encouraged to take the survey and, through a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the results, we are able to offer customized recommendations for achieving better balance among all parties.
The below link introduces the AlignMint model which is designed to measure the levels of alignment organizations just like yours face. A full AlignMint workshop and survey would provide a comprehensive analysis including recommendations tailored for your unique fundraising and organizational challenges.
