Advisory boards or committees are volunteer groups formed to give advice and support to a nonprofit's governing board or executive staff.
Unlike a governing board, an advisory board does not have any formal legal responsibilities or decision-making authority. Nonetheless, advisory boards can be helpful for purposes of fundraising, gathering advice on specific programs, or providing leadership opportunities for key individuals who may not have the capacity to serve on an organization's governing board.
