FFMW’s Nonprofit Board Matching Program Registration Open Through Sept. 2

Do you want to serve on a nonprofit board, but aren’t sure where to start? Or maybe you’re a member of a corporate leadership team who wants to engage your employees in meaningful nonprofit volunteer opportunities. Nonprofit board service is a great way to apply professional and personal experience to benefit the local community, while networking and developing relationships with peers.

If you are a nonprofit and want to participate in this program please email [email protected] by August 19th.

Launched in 2021, the MetroWest Nonprofit Board Matching Program was designed to help strengthen our region by matching engaged corporate leaders and rising stars with nonprofit board opportunities in the MetroWest region. Our six-session training program includes partnerships with industry experts in fundraising, governance, and non-profit finance.

In 2021, 100% of participants were matched and are serving on a nonprofit board. Our 2021 matches included: Circle of Hope, Cultural Alliance of Medfield, Doc Wayne Youth Services, Waltham Partnership for Youth.

Registration for the 2022 program closes Friday, September 2nd.

“We know our Bowditch & Dewey community is rich with talented individuals ready and willing to serve on nonprofit boards, but we found that many of these individuals did not know where to connect with organizations whose mission and needs aligned with their personal values and skills. Participants not only feel more prepared to take on board leadership roles because of the in-depth curriculum, but they have built personal connections through the Foundation’s program, leading to great matches and meaningful commitments.”
