About Us
Mission Statement:

The mission of Fisher Board Fellows is to serve our communities through partnerships with non-profit boards. Fisher Board Fellows accomplishes this by providing strategic business assistance that helps each partner board fulfill its organization’s mission, while exposing Fellows to meaningful non-profit leadership experiences that exercise and develop their business acumen.

About Us:

Founded in the summer of 2004, Fisher Board Fellows (FBF) is a student-run organization at the Max M. Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University. FBF brings together the Columbus community and the College by selecting Fisher MBA candidates and placing them on boards of area non-profits as non-voting members for eighteen month terms.

Fellows, mentored by a board member and with the full support of the non-profit executive director and board chair, contribute to their non-profit organizations by attending all board and assigned committee meetings. In addition, Fellows complete a strategic, board-level project that harnesses the Fellow’s business expertise and adds long-term value to the partner organization.

FBF develops relationships that are beneficial to all parties. Fellows gain valuable experience working with non-profits and senior business leaders. Boards receive new perspectives from experienced professionals and educated analysis on topics integral to the success of their organizations.
