Almost every nonprofit leader struggles at some point to get their board to perform better. Whether you are an executive director, a fellow board member, or staff.

  • Are you struggling to get your board to take attendance seriously?
  • Is your board avoiding fundraising with every excuse in the book?
  • Are they distracted, busy, disengaged, or just plain "checked out" at times?
  • Does your board ask good questions, provide quality due diligence and oversight?

Board members “own” the nonprofit in the eyes of the law, but they usually don’t even work there. In addition, most boards don't get the orientation and training they need to be successful.

This can cause a disconnect and dysfunction.

Enter...the “Board Agreement” – the single most powerful tool you can use in getting your board to perform.

In this training, we will show you the powerful and simple elements that are fundamental to building a rockstar board.

You will get a free sample board agreement.

In less than an hour, you’ll:

  • Better understand what boards are, how they operate, and how they fail
  • Know how to transform your board's engagement in a few months
  • Understand some of the psychology behind board agreements
  • Know how a board agreement can help with recruitment, retention, and removal of members
  • Know how to enforce the agreement
  • Invitation to my students-only private Facebook group

You are able to ask questions of me in my Facebook Group and within the course for 1 year.

Sean revealed the truth — which comes with real responsibility and incredible opportunity: my board is my nonprofit’s biggest ally or its biggest headache. And with the right tools (which Sean has!) it’s a lot more fun and actually easier to have a rockstar board.

Adam Sher
Development Director, The Jewish Studio Project

Sean's webinar on Building a Rockstar Nonprofit Board & Increase Fundraising was an incredibly valuable crash course for me in the early stages of setting up my non-profit and recruiting members to my board. It gave me insights into what to watch out for, and a strategic vision for how I should be setting expectations for my organization from the get-go to make sure we're set up for success.

Pamela Walshe, Founder | Executive Director

As a Founder and CEO it is hard to motivate the board to get on my level. But the resources that Sean provided will help me do that! Check him out! ...We don’t have committees because I have done most everything as the ED. But that is changing and your board agreement will help us do that.

Chasen Brokaw, Co-Founder and Executive Director
Breaking Borders Inc.

He is an engaging speaker who has a lot of experience and knowledge about the nonprofit space. Sean helped the attendees understand how designing a good Board Agreement can make a huge difference in the success of an organization. He knows how to get his points across in a fun, interesting way that keeps people's attention and leaves them with useful takeaways.

Hi, I’m Sean, and I'm the Nonprofit Fixer!

I’ve worked in nonprofit organizations since I was 16 (over 28 years).

I love nonprofits. I study nonprofits. I also lead and fix nonprofits. Whether its local, state or national - or charitable or political – I have helped grow and develop organizations of all kinds. I've served as an Executive Director for 5 organizations. I am a coach and consultant for boards, executive directors and activists of all stripes. I’ve worked in communications, victim services, civil rights, environment, policy, bullying prevention, lobbying, management and much more.

I learned how to run a nonprofit the hard way – by watching someone do it poorly. I’ve also been thrown into the deep end and told to sink or swim. I don’t want that to happen to anyone else, so I have made it a commitment to my business to train people how to effectively fundraise and manage organizations for maximum impact. I’m nationally known and respected, and I’m a really swell guy (just wait, you’ll see!).

Best of all, I cut through the BS. My tools and trainings are straight-to-the-point, immediately useful, and chock-full of tips and tactics you can start using today.

I have raised money for a wide variety of causes, community projects, political campaigns, and much more. He is a published author of "Fundraising Power Pack"

I live in San Francisco with my husband Travis and my adorable dog, Harry!
