What Can We Do About the Board???

Presented by Kristen Kenyon, Director of Philanthropy, Gallo Center for the Arts


As non-profit organizations (and the world) continue to emerge from this extended period of crisis management, many orgs across all sectors report having felt let down by their Board leadership during the pandemic. The structure of many non-profit Boards can feel dated, ineffective and often create a vacuum that requires staff time and resources to manage. This presentation will offer some context around the current state of non-profit Boards, including highlights from the recent AFP ICON sessions. I will also provide resources to help create a path for the way forward, and include time for Q&A.

Kristen Kenyon, Director of Philanthropy
Gallo Center for the Arts

Kristen brings more than 30 years of front-line fundraising and consulting experience to her current position as Director of Philanthropy at the Gallo Center. An area of particular interest to her is how technology is rapidly changing how fundraising both works and even looks in communities across the country. As a consultant with a national client base, she delivered projects on mission-driven strategic planning; expanding Board and volunteer recruitment efforts; capital campaign planning and technology implementations. Before joining the Gallo Center in 2021, she was the Major Gifts Officer for Community Hospice Foundation.
