Board Member Matching Program

Board Member Matching Program

Are you looking to join a nonprofit board? Or are you a nonprofit looking for board members? If you answered “Yes!” to either question, then this new Board Member Matching Program is for you!

Join a Nonprofit Board

If you are looking to join a nonprofit board, then check out the list below of local nonprofits who seek experienced board candidates. Your unique skills and expertise might just be exactly what they’re looking for!

Once you find a nonprofit organization you’d like to serve, please complete and submit this Board Member Candidate Interest Form. You will indicate on the form which nonprofit(s) you are interested in, and we will forward to them your form. The nonprofit(s) will follow-up with you directly if they believe your skills and experience are a good match for what they currently need in a board member.

Looking for board  training?

If you would like to increase your understanding of board roles and responsibilities, we are proud to offer a new “Fundamentals of Nonprofit Board Governance” workshop. We are partnering with Propel Nonprofits from the Twin Cities to offer this course several times a year free of charge to folks in the La Crosse area (a $75 value). Click here to sign up

Find Board Members

Nonprofits looking for new board members can start their recruitment process here. Please note: The board member matching approach works best for organizations that:

  • Have been operating as a nonprofit for a year or more
  • Have a board in place with regular meetings and active board members at least in office positions
  • Are relatively stable organizationally and financially

If you meet all the above criteria, please complete the Nonprofit Seeking Board Members Intake Form to get started with your board member matching process. We’ll add you below to the “Nonprofit Board Opportunities” list where your posting will stay active for six months. You can decide to have us remove it prior to that, or ask us to renew your listing for an additional six months, with one year maximum.

If individuals are interested in serving on your board, they will submit the Board Member Candidate Interest Form and we will forward it to you.

If your organization does not meet the criteria listed above, you might find helpful this article from Propel Nonprofits about recruiting nonprofit board members: https://www.propelnonprofits.org/resources/recruiting-new-board-members/
