NPO Self-Assessment Tool

The La Crosse Community Foundation has designed the following Nonprofit Self Assessment Tool to help nonprofit organizations identify areas for improvement across seven key categories:

  • Governance
  • Human Resources & Operations (for organizations with paid staff)
  • Financial Oversight & Risk Management
  • Marketing & Communication
  • Fundraising/Resource Development
  • Program Management & Effectiveness
  • Legal Compliance & Preserving Tax Exempt Status

The assessment can be completed anonymously; results are not stored or shared with the La Crosse Community Foundation staff, board of directors, or anyone else. You may optionally enter an email address if you wish to receive a copy of your results via email. You will also be able to print your results page upon completing the assessment.

This assessment is extremely comprehensive, and will take at least 30 minutes to complete. Results will be most accurate if completed by the organization's top leader.
