High-value, high-level board matching service


Since 2010, Board Member Connect has been providing perfect-fit board matching service for nonprofits. We connect you with high-level, industry-leading board members who are enthusiastic about your mission and possess the necessary professional skills.

With a combined 30 years of nonprofit experience, we understand your daily challenges of managing your organization, growing your network and reaching your fundraising goals.

As a board matching service that has paired hundreds of candidates to nonprofits across the country, we know how to find the specific expertise and connections you need to reach your goals. By working with us as a team, finding qualified members who bring real value to your organization, both financially and strategically, is almost effortless for you.

Using detailed criteria you provide, we hand-pick potential candidates who align with your mission and board expectations. The best part: These high-level candidates are the cream of the crop. All our board candidates are trailblazers in their organizations and industry, including C-suite, senior-level, partner-level and director-level leaders.

Throughout the entire process, we continuously communicate updates with you and quickly answer any questions you have.

From introduction to filled board seat, here’s how we partner with you to find your next ideal board member.

  1. You fill us in with everything you’re looking for in a new board member(s). We ask questions to make sure we understand exactly what you’re saying, as together, we define who you need.
  2. We present you with potential candidates. All of the multiple candidates are like-minded to your organization, love your mission, represent your community and agree to the responsibilities and expectations of your board position.
  3. Then, we officially introduce you to a potential board member. By the time you meet with potential board members, they already understand your organization and what you need.
  4. The end result: A passionate, engaged board member for your organization.


  • Our results after working with the Board Member Connect team have far exceeded our expectations.  After strategically expanding the diversity of the members of our board, we believe our board more closely represents the community we serve.  We would definitely welcome the opportunity to work with them again in the future.

    Lyn Scott
    Executive Director, Guardianship Services
  • Board Member Connect has greatly expanded our network of connections and has introduced us to people we wouldn’t ordinarily meet.  Using detailed criteria that you provide, they conduct a comprehensive screening of C-level executives and business owners, and will only advance a candidate if the benchmarks are met or exceeded.  We are very pleased with the 4 board members we have elected over the last 3 years via Board Member Connect.  This is an investment well worth making.

    Karen Van Der Beken
    Chief Advancement Officer, Easterseals New Hampshire
  • Board Member Connect was very easy to work with and listened to our wish list for board candidates. Within four months, prospects were identified by Board Member Connect, interviewed by members of our Board Development Committee, and three new board members were voted onto the GSNNJ Board. The financial pledges from the new board members more than covered the cost of the consulting fee. I highly recommend Board Member Connect.

    Betty A. Garger
    President/Chief Executive Officer, Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey
  • While at Make-A-Wish America and now with Genesys Works, I have been pleased with the talent Board Member Connect have helped source for our various boards over the years. 

    David Williams
    President & CEO, Genesys Works
  • Board Member Connect has been a terrific partner to Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ (GSCSNJ).  While our Board Development Committee continued to network in the community for new talent for our Board, Board Member Connect helped catapult our efforts by making connections with talented individuals with whom we had no prior relationship. We were looking for specific expertise and connections, and they delivered. GSCSNJ has 6 amazing, engaged new Board members thanks to Board Member Connect!

    Ginny Marino
    CEO, Girl Scouts of Central & Southern New Jersey
  • We’ve been more than pleased with the candidates that you’ve sent our way. Each brings a vast array of experience and connections that add to our agency, and equally as important to us is that they are a good fit in terms of character, integrity, and passion to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. They are exactly what we needed at exactly the right time. We could not be more excited!

    Vicki Niedermayer
    Chief Executive Officer, Helping Restore Ability
  • We are exceptionally pleased with both the process and the results of our board member search. Board Member Connect connected us to candidates whose skills and interests well matched our needs, and we are thrilled to have two new and fantastic board members as a result. I would recommend this service to colleagues without hesitation.

    Jennifer Peck
    Executive Director, Partnership for Children & Youth
  • It is with great pride and pleasure to say that Board Member Connect has been a tremendous asset to our organization and I would recommend this highly professional company to other nonprofits.

    James Littlejohn
    Executive Director, Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley
  • Board Member Connect was instrumental in finding a non-profit board opportunity for me. I had always wanted to give back but was never sure how to start the process. David reached out, introduced himself, and gave me an oversight on what Board Member Connect could do for me. After a short conversation about my interests, he fielded and provided opportunities for me, presenting me with a choice of three organizations. Ultimately I decided on Los Angeles Education Partnership. The process could not have been easier and the service he provided was fantastic. I can’t recommend them enough!

    Amy Reinhard
    President, WW TV Licensing, Paramount Pictures
  • Board Member Connect did a magnificent job of connecting me with a non-profit that tapped into my passion, and to a board made up of enthusiastic, committed, and fun individuals. Without Board Member Connect, it would have taken an enormous amount of effort and energy to find the right fit. That’s energy wasted that can be put into making a difference.

    Chris Hubble
    CEO, db5
  • Board Member Connect helped me discover a non-profit that matched my interests personally and professionally. The organization that they introduced me to had Board members with similar backgrounds and a mission that I could believe in.

    Executive Vice President, Universal Pictures
  • Somehow Board Member Connect was able to make what I consider to be a perfect match. Many thanks for making this connection and for the opportunity to support this very worthy effort.

    Renee Opell
    Director, Green Dot Corp.
  • Board Member Connect connected me with an organization whose mission was a natural fit on a personal and professional level. I was able to dive right in and have an impact in advancing their mission.

    Kahlil Reid
    Senior Vice President, BCMS Corp.
  • I was contacted by Board Member Connect about an opportunity with a nonprofit that was right in my sweet spot, combining my professional background with my passion for helping people through healthy living. Further, David Lewis went the extra mile to connect me with the board of the local chapter in my area. Thank you Board Member Connect!
