As a Non Profit Organisation, having the right leaders to serve on your Board is instrumental to your success. However, recruiting an effective Board can be challenging.
Whether you are a start-up or established Charity/NPO, Board Match can help.
Recruit skilled and committed members to help govern and manage their organisation
Attract experts, highly-experienced businessmen or senior civil servants or management executives from various fields and sectors
Ensure the presence of a diversity of expertise and skills on the board
Enhance capacity to network and access resources
Put in place a process and system for board renewal
Board Match was initiated by the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) in 2007 to guide and support NPOs to find Board leaders who can contribute significantly to their respective organisation’s vision and mission. In March 2009, the programme was handed over to Centre for Non-Profit Leadership (formerly Mentoring Partnership International), who continues to work closely with NVPC in ensuring the relevance and success of the programme.
CNPL also coordinates with MCYS (Charities Unit), EDB (IO Programme) and the Charity Sector Administrators in developing the Board Match Programme. CNPL also works with corporations and professional associations in maintaining a qualified pool of candidates.
The Board Match service is provided pro-bono to Charities and Non-Profit Organisations.
We shall contact you to confirm your application and understand your needs. Following this, we shall begin to source for suitable board match volunteers for you. This process normally takes about 4-5 weeks. After the board match volunteers have been identified and referred to you, you may contact them directly to follow-up. CNPL strongly recommends that your NPO assess each board match volunteer carefully on your own means (whether via sub-committees, interviews, etc) before absorbing them into your organisation.
Board Match is currently running on a referral system. CNPL does not endorse the board match volunteers.
"The introduction of a Board Match applicant who can serve as a Committee Member on our Board is timely. With his background, skills and network, I’m confident we can get things moving faster. We hope he will move on to serve as one of our Board Members."
- Mr Daniel Jesudason (Executive Director of an NPO)
"Since the introduction of Board Match in 2007, APSN has availed itself of this service in its bid at Board renewal and rejuvenation after grappling with this problem on and off for 33 years. Through Board Match we have been able to induct professionals with expertise in various areas such as accountancy, finance, human resources, psychological and therapy services and management to fill positions both on the Board and on the Sub-committees. I strongly recommend that Non Profit Organisations and Charities looking to strengthening their Board diversity and leadership to consider Board Match."
