OUR COMMUNITIES NEED LEADERSHIP

Everything that’s ever changed the course of a community began with that community’s leadership. We believe leadership is the key element to any kind of collective success.

Our Story

The mission is big, but the idea is simple: BoardBuild was born from the desire to strengthen communities.  We know the best way to strengthen the social fabric of any community is to strengthen the fibers of its leadership.

It’s with these thoughts in mind that we’ve developed an innovative pairing of robust board governance, nonprofit resource, and leadership training with the advanced matching of candidates and nonprofit board openings. We invite you to join us in our mission and become a BoardBuilder today.

Vision

We envision a world where diverse, trained leaders and organizations unite and foster strong communities in which to work, play and grow.

Mission

We are on a mission to strengthen communities through the training and matching of emerging and established leaders with qualified nonprofit boards.

Our Promise to diversity

BoardBuild is committed to acknowledging and valuing the uniqueness of every stakeholder and to creating an environment in which all individuals’ strengths and abilities are included, developed and valued. All stakeholders share in the responsibility for creating this environment and are expected to demonstrate mutual respect and acceptance. We believe that by respecting individuality we will enhance communication, problem-solving and decision-making skills, thereby improving overall organizational productivity and performance. We also believe if our directors, officers and employees mirror the diverse make-up of our community, we will be able to better understand, and more effectively respond to, community needs. We strive for excellence in our ability to create an inclusive, respectful, considerate and equitable environment for all through leadership, policies, and practices.
