The Gulf Coast Board Institute provides high-level board governance training to new and veteran nonprofit board members in the Gulf Coast region. Combining interactive educational sessions with follow-up peer discussions, the Board Institute is the latest addition to Gulf Coast Community Foundation’s Invest in Incredible nonprofit capacity-building initiative.



At Gulf Coast, we envision a region known for endowed philanthropy, a vital nonprofit community, and the ability to address emerging issues. The Gulf Coast Board Institute is our latest investment in strengthening our nonprofit partners.


The Board Institute is open to new and veteran board members. Participants are selected through a competitive process with the intent of creating a group of individuals with a variety of experiences.


Regardless of prior board experience, all participants should possess a personal commitment to use what they learn through the Gulf Coast Board Institute to strengthen the governance capacity of a nonprofit organization in the Gulf Coast region.  


Each regular session of the Gulf Coast Board Institute welcomes up to 25 individuals, who participate in five half-day interactive training experiences over a six-week period and three follow-up monthly peer discussion sessions.

 
Through the Gulf Coast Board Institute, participants are provided with a comprehensive overview of governance issues as well as in-depth exploration of key governance topics.
