Who We Serve

Foundation and Strategic Partners

Work with us to help provide the organizations, grantees, and members you support with capacity-building assistance and nonprofit board leadership opportunities.


Expanded Resources for Your Community

Connect your nonprofits to a board candidate recruitment network and help your nonprofits carry out their board development strategy. Being one of our vetted nonprofits through the BoardLead process creates new opportunities for them to speed up and simplify their search for talented professionals to serve on their board.


Access to Corporate and Peer Networks

By partnering with Cause Strategy Partners to introduce your nonprofit network to BoardLead, your community gains access to talented future board members from Fortune 500 companies and professional service firms.


Added Governance Training for Nonprofits

Access to training and resources is central to our commitment to nonprofit partners. By participating in BoardLead, nonprofits and their board members receive year-round opportunities to deepen their governance understanding as well as free resources to take back to the board room.


How Partnership Works

We partner with local community foundations and nonprofit support organizations to nominate and enroll nonprofits in free opportunities for board matching and governance training. Partnerships can take many forms and are founded on a mutual desire to mutually support each other’s mission and elevate nonprofit leadership in the boardroom.


Experience the Difference

Recruit qualified, effective, skilled, and passion-aligned board candidates with a clear understanding of good governance practices who are ready and prepared to fundraise from day one. Plus, nonprofit participation in BoardLead is 100% free.


Leadership Growth for your Community

We partner with foundations and nonprofit conveners across the country to help them create additional benefits for the nonprofit boards they support.
