Get On Board

Board Matching Program


Get On Board connects REALIZE Board trained professionals with established, local nonprofits. Local nonprofits must have been established within the last five years, demonstrate a need for new Board members in 2024 and beyond, and a commitment to board development through new community leadership. All board prospects must demonstrate a commitment to serving on a nonprofit board, and all that it entails.

Application Process

Applications for Get On Board are received and reviewed on an ongoing basis.

  • All applicants must have completed at least four of the eight REALIZE Board training courses within the last two years.

  • Applications will be reviewed by the United Way of El Paso County and the REALIZE Board Training program.

  • Once a match is identified, board prospects and the nonprofit leadership team (ED + Board Chair) should meet to learn more about the role, expectations, and each other. 

  • All matches of the Get On Board program will be announced at the end of the year. Due to a variety of factors and needs, we cannot guarantee a match for all applicants.
