Board Match New York is back for the second year in New York City!
Board Match is a networking event providing 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, Marketing/PR, Health Care and more.
After more than ten years of success in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, Board Match is thrilled to return for the second year, in New York City. Board Match is much more than an opportunity for your executive director, board chair, and board members to meet prospective board members in one place. We select nonprofits through an application process that identifies your specific needs. We provide resources about board-building, and recruit a pool of high-quality and diverse candidates that also have access to training and resources about board service.

Board Match by the numbers:
Each Board Match event includes ~150 nonprofits, and recruits 800+ 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:
