1. Apply

During the application process, you’ll share your areas of expertise, which Community Results speak most to you, why you’re interested in serving on a nonprofit board, and your demographic information. The application is open now through Sunday, August 1 and includes a $25 non-refundable application fee. (Don’t let this deter you from applying—discounts are available!)

2. Register & Attend Training

SA2020 will invite successful applicants to a virtual training in September to learn how to successfully apply and serve on a nonprofit board. SA2020 will offer two cohort options. Participation in a cohort is required to receive your matches. 

Cohort I: September 11 & 18

Cohort II: September 14 & 21

Each cohort includes a 2.25-hour session on each day. Registration is at sliding scale ($65-$200).

3. Meet Your Matches

SA2020 will match you (as best we can) with nonprofit organizations whose board needs align with your areas of expertise. (See a list of participating organizations.) If you receive matches, leaders from those organizations will reach out after the trainings so that you can learn more about the organization, requirements of serving on their board, and board application process. If you both think it’s a good match, you’ll be ready to apply to serve on their board.

1. Complete the Board Survey

Nonprofit Partners interested in participating must complete a board survey to share info about their board, including the current demographic make up and areas of expertise you’re looking for. 

To learn more, watch the recording of our info session for Nonprofit Partners, held on May 26th.

2. Register & Attend Training

SA2020 will host a virtual training for Nonprofit Partners, offered on two different days. Participation in this training is required to receive matches.

September 1 & 2

The training will share best practices in board development, including how to advance racial equity.

3. Meet Your Matches

After the trainings, your organization will receive your matches. You can review their resumes and invite any who may be prospective board members to a short meeting to learn more about the organization, responsibilities of board service, and process to apply. If interested, matches are then expected to go through your organization’s typical application process to join your board.
