Board Match Up - for Community Members
RequiredRequired Question(s)
Do you want to help a local nonprofit make an impact on the communities they serve, while they work to remain sustainable, able to continue the valuable work they do? Are you looking to expand your professional network, grow your leadership experience, and use your skills to help a cause that matters most to you?

If you are interested in serving on a local nonprofit board, please complete the form below. We will use this form, along with a separate survey completed by nonprofits, to match up your interests, skills, and availability, to a nonprofit in need. 

The Board Match Up Program serves as an information sharing opportunity for you to learn of local nonprofit organizations in need of new board members. Once we provide you with initial contact information, that nonprofit will contact you to continue the conversation and discern whether or not it is a good fit. You are under no obligation to serve on this board but we do hope that you will participate in thoughtful discussions to learn more about the opportunity, and notify them of your decision in a timely manner.

*NOTE: The goal of this program is to help nonprofits find board members who are knowledgeable and committed to the role and its expectations. If you have not previously served on a nonprofit Board, we ask that you plan to attend one of our upcoming Onboarding Classes, designed specifically for people who have never served and to help them better understand their role.
