Ms. Natalie Zundel

Term:

Since July 2011

Profile:

Natalie Zundel is the Director of Philanthropy at the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Foundation. Passionate about fundraising’s impact on society, and with a decade of development experience, Natalie is leading a team of fundraising professionals to implement a donor centered fundraising model that advances the mission of ASCE through annual, major, and planned gifts. She is committed to providing a high quality donor experience, which has resulted in donor retention rates over 70% (industry standard = 43%) and a growth in major gifts of 525% over the last three years at the ASCE Foundation. Prior to joining the ASCE Foundation in August 2011 as its Senior Manager of Major Gifts, Natalie managed the major gift program at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. Before that she served as the Development Director for the DC-based nonprofit, Urban Alliance. During her tenure there as a one-woman fundraising shop, she more than doubled the revenue for the organization, allowing the program to expand from a local to regional focus. She is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Association Foundation Group (AFG), and the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). She serves on the AFG Board of Directors, chairs AFG’s Communications & Marketing Committee and is a member of their National Conference Committee.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided
