Finding and Recruiting Non-profit Board Members

During the COVID-19 crisis, we know that non-profit organizations are only as strong as their boards. Constellation specializes in helping you to recruit new non-profit board members and recommit your existing board members.

Our approach centers on targeted research that comports with APRA ethical guidelines. With this method we find indicators of non-profit interest and giving capacity. We have worked with many clients to develop our signature outreach approaches, which we use to reach out to board prospects and test their potential interest in volunteer involvement.

We believe in creative and effective approaches, such as using major gift officers to drive board recruitment as part of their discovery and outreach brief. We like to package board recruitment with larger engagement studies that reaffirm your existing board members and expand your circle of volunteer leaders. We believe in research that gives you a real point of connection and a personalized outreach that produces results. We have placed high-capacity, non-alumni board members at colleges: a challenge that some may label impossible.

We use:

  • Targeted research to find board prospects with the interest, contacts, and means to help.
  • Highly professional outreach initiatives to arrange meetings involving you and new board prospects.
  • Engagement studies to reach new prospects and re-engage the best existing prospects.
