The Board Game application process will open in March 2021.

The Board Game

A leadership development training and matching program for nonprofit board service

Under Civic Engagement, San Antonians envisioned a city that “cultivates inspired and effective leaders in selfless service to the community.” In 2019, SA2020 trained and matched 138 individuals for nonprofit board service after identifying a gap of nearly 400 board seats among our Nonprofit Partners. 

The Board Game has been a superior professional development resource that delivered instrumental board service education, invaluable networking connections, and vital tools to elevate my board governance to the next level. My professional development network has expanded exponentially to strategically root me in the San Antonio community and connect me with strong leaders that provide key mentorship and guidance. I am a new transplant to the area with quaint connections and was able to effectively leverage SA2020 to land a Board of Directors position.

The Board Game invites San Antonians to learn how to successfully apply and serve on a nonprofit board. Given the importance of representing the communities we serve, people of color (especially women and gender non-conforming folks of color), people who live in City Council Districts 2-7, and folks under the age of 40 are encouraged to apply. Based on the current needs of Nonprofit Partners, people with experience in fundraising, marketing and public relations/communications, technology, advancing equity, and strategic planning are also encouraged to apply. At the training, SA2020 will match participants to current board openings with Nonprofit Partners.
