The Board Match
The Executive Leadership from Bay Area nonprofits, in one place, at one time, for one purpose--to meet you.

Welcome to the Board Match.
A signature event produced by The Volunteer Center.
Whether you're from a nonprofit looking to grow and diversify your board of directors, or an individual looking to give back and get involved at a deeper level, stronger, healthier Bay Area communities and a more active citizenry go hand-in-hand. 

The only event of its kind, of its scale, of its success matching nonprofits with board members.

The Board Match offers a unique opportunity for people like you to become stronger leaders by serving on the boards of directors of local nonprofit organizations. Board service is for everyone, whether you're just starting out, a mid-career professional, or a seasoned philanthropist, there is a nonprofit that will value your talents. Nonprofit board service offers young and mid-career professionals opportunities to become organizational and community leaders, with benefits for their own professional growth, as well as an entrée into philanthropy and civic stewardship that inspires others and can become a pattern for life. It offers seasoned professionals approaching retirement a vital next step in a lifelong career, the opportunity to put well-honed skills to use, build new networks, and foster the growth of other leaders.

Nonprofit organizations: All spaces are filled and there is a waitlist!
