BoardConnect, NonProfitConnect’s flagship program, is a comprehensive training program for participants who are interested in joining a nonprofit board or who are already serving on a board and want to sharpen their skills. BoardConnect includes six hours of training in a virtual setting or eight hours in an in-person setting on topics critical to nonprofit board service:

  • Governance
  • Fiduciary Responsibility
  • Fundraising
  • Legal Issues

After completion of the BoardConnect course, participants have the opportunity to attend a virtual or in-person “Meet & Greet” event to engage with multiple local nonprofits in order to find organizations that align with their interests.

For group class sessions hosted by an organization, this program is also available virtually or in-person. NonProfitConnect is proud to have conducted the BoardConnect program with employees with leading organizations in the region, including The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, NRG, and Janssen Pharmaceutica. For more information about BoardConnect for organizations, contact Allison Howe.
