BOARD SPEED DATING
Once a year Seattle Works, Leadership Tomorrow, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, ArtsFund, and United Way of King County present Board Speed Dating Night! Each year, our programs train hundreds of individuals in the essentials of nonprofit and public board service. We can help your organization connect with these talented, enthusiastic volunteers and spread the word about your current board openings.
We'll be opening up applications for this event in August. Our organizations will review all the entries in early October and sending out invitations based on the capacity of our event space and the interests of our networks. At that time, invited organizations will be asked to pay a $25 registration fee.

We help connect companies who want to make a difference with nonprofits that want to complete big projects! Materials used in Corporate Partnership projects are paid for by the company, so not only is there a grant of person-power to help get things done, but also a grant of materials. Let Liz know what projects you are dreaming of so she can make a partner match! Email us.
