Board Match Up - for Nonprofit Organizations
RequiredRequired Question(s)
If your nonprofit is in need of new Board members, please complete the following form. We will use this form, along with a separate survey completed by those interested in serving on a local nonprofit board, to match your needs to their interests, skills, availability, etc. 

The Board Match Up Program serves as an information sharing opportunity for your organization to learn of potential board members whose interests and skills match up with your needs. Once we provide you with initial contact information, it is then your responsibility to continue the conversation and discern whether or not it is a good fit for your nonprofit Board needs. You are under no obligation to approve this person, but we do expect that you and your Board will conduct a thoughtful interview process and notify him/her of your decision in a timely manner.

*NOTE: Prior to matching up community members who have no prior board experience, they must first agree to attend an Onboarding Class in order to learn about the roles, responsibilities, and rewards of serving on a nonprofit board. This is NOT meant to replace any orientation that your own organization provides for incoming Board members to become familiar with your particular nonprofit.
