About Board Match Los Angeles
The Board Match is more than a networking event, it’s a strategy for long term board recruitment and retention.

Board Match provides nonprofit organizations an opportunity to meet with hundreds of highly qualified board candidates from major employers, across industries including: Technology, Financial Services, Legal, Real Estate, Government, Marketing/PR, Health Care and more.
Participating nonprofits are selected through an application process that identifies your specific needs and provides training for your leadership about board-building. We then recruit a pool of high-quality and diverse candidates that also have access to training and resources about board service.

Each Board Match event includes 100 - 150 nonprofits, and regularly recruits 600+ candidates who attend the event. Up to 250 new board members are placed as a result of each Board Match event! Participation fees for the Board Match are determined on a sliding scale based on your 501(c)3's annual operating budget, and include training and webinars for senior staff and board members:

Fee Schedule:
$250: Level 1, budget under $400K
$275: Level 2, budget $400K - $999K
$375: Level 3, budget $1M - $499M
