Is there any hope for a problematic board?

Since I joined a nonprofit that I deeply care about as the Executive Director, we've had a clear turnaround - everyone, including the board, agrees that we're both much more financially stable and successful with our mission than when we started. However, there are a series of serious issues regarding funding and real estate that, if not resolved in the next couple of years, will spell the end of the nonprofit, and these are issues I can't tackle alone. The board are dragging their feet - primarily, it seems, out of confusion and lack of desire to become engaged. I've tried several approaches to raise these issues and get the board activated. What are all my options?

Which officer role(s) should the founder of a small nonprofit take?

I'm starting a small nonprofit. It is just myself at this point, though I have a very serious organization verbally committed to seed money and promotion. I have not yet solicited a board of directors or officers. What do most sole operators do? Do I double serve as executive director and board chair, at least initially? Or, do I take on the most labor-intensive offices of treasurer/secretary? I throw this out to the experts here, of whom there seem to be many, based on my perusal of nonprofit threads.
