Find Board Members

Board Connector can be a great way to connect with potential board candidates. In our experience matching community members with nonprofit organizations, we have found that this approach works best for organizations that:

  • Have at least one paid staff person
  • Have been operating as a nonprofit for at least one year
  • Have a board in place with regular board meetings, active participation by board members, and board officers in place
  • Are relatively stable organizationally and financially

For nonprofits that operate with all volunteers, in the startup stage, or going through a period of big change, we have found that other approaches are more effective to identify prospective board members. If your organization fits the above criteria, email boardconnector@propelnonprofits.org for more information about finding new board members through Board Connector.
