Why it Matters

Only 32% of boards place a high priority on “knowledge of the community served” as part of board recruitment.
Board Diversity helps to increase the double bottom line of mission and money.
Diverse boards help to raise awareness and understanding of the relevance of racial inequities of the organization’s mission.
“As a working and volunteer-led board, using AK Board Match was an invaluable experience for our small but mighty team. Ultimately, the tool connected us with a candidate who not only brought valuable expertise we were missing but also shared our passion for our mission. Thanks to this tool, we were able to successfully vet, nominate, and onboard our newest board member, who is already making a significant impact.”

“Utilizing The Foraker Group’s board match tool was not only an easy process, but a smart move! Connecting non-profits with high-quality board members not only strengthens the non-profit, but the communities we serve. We are very thankful for this fantastic tool, and will most certainly use it again.”

“AK Board Match was very easy to use and connected me quickly with a non-profit that I was passionate about! I’ve never had a process that went so smoothly before. This is a great tool that is very much needed. I’m excited to now be on a board and serve the people who protect and rehabilitate the birds of Alaska that so many Alaskans and visitors watch and enjoy.”
