We provide a unique method for passionate members of the business community to connect with amazing causes in the Seattle area through board service.
Based on research and discussions with nonprofits (NFP) over the last ten years, finding board members can be a daunting and time-consuming task. Add to this the lack of understanding of the roles and responsibilities of serving on a board, the search for an informed individual who is passionate about a specific cause can become overwhelming and a huge drain on an organization’s resources.
NFPs are not the only ones with this issue. Companies also face a similar challenge of finding well-matched board seats for their employees.
To improve the performance of the nonprofit sector by identifying and bringing dedicated, passionate and trained business professionals to serve on nonprofit boards.
CGN has created a process to bring the right board members and nonprofits together. Here is an overview of the process:
Potential board members should start the Board MatchMaking process by attending one of our free Board Service Workshops to learn about the responsibilities of board service.
In the case that the NFP does not find a suitable match, they are in no way obligated to CGN for anything and can participate in another round of matchmaking with the same or different company. CGN will continue to find the right match within this or another company until such time as the NFP finds at least one good match.
