This paper presents empirical results of the effects of board structure and composition on individual board level performance using data from New York City nonprofits. The results support a model of executive behavior in which the nonprofit executive uses his or her power to push boards towards fundraising in place of monitoring activity. Using a fixed effect framework, we also find no systematic relationship between board personal demographics and performance.
