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 for more information about finding new board members through Board Connector.
