As donors and contributors to a multitude of local nonprofit organizations, we recognize that the state of McLennan County’s nonprofit sector is changing.  The ever-increasing need and demand for services, coupled with a decrease in the amount of resources available to help address those needs, require nonprofits to continually adapt and overcome such challenges. Fully-informed, effective leadership is needed from all nonprofit boards of directors so that agencies can: 

    • Successfully adapt and respond to changing community needs;
    • Establish plans and goals for meeting the community’s needs within the framework of the organization’s mission;
    • Secure the resources (financial, human and community) needed to fulfill the organization’s mission and initiatives; and
    • Set and manage appropriate budgets (both income and expense) in order to sustain the organization.

The Building Better Boards (BBB) Initiative

This initiative was developed to help address the challenges facing our local service providers. The purpose of BBB events and trainings are to:

  • Provide an easy and inexpensive way for local nonprofits to receive the correct amount of quality Board training; and
  • Increase the number of people in Waco who have been properly and thoroughly trained in nonprofit Board service.
