Nonprofit Organizations: Did you know about No-Cost Governance Assessments by UO Nonprofit Clinic?

The University of Oregon Nonprofit Clinic provides a free governance assessment to Oregon nonprofits (budget size $50k to $3m). Applications are accepted on a rolling basis with assessments conducted January through April each year.

Participating Nonprofits are assigned an interdisciplinary team of graduate students drawn from the U of O’s School of Law, the Nonprofit Management Program, the Business School and the Master’s Degree Program in Conflict and Dispute Resolution (CRES). An experienced consultant assists the team.

The Nonprofit Clinic provides tailored assessments, intended to assist Oregon Nonprofits’ Boards of Directors in identifying strengths, needs for growth and educating them about best practices. A written report, guidance on how to accomplish suggested changes and a detailed resource packet to help with implementation of recommendations is included.

The Clinic also proves a valuable legal compliance check, including review of the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws.
