About OnBoard Together
OnBoard Together is a Silicon Valley-wide initiative dedicated to helping local nonprofits create strong boards of directors. This is a joint venture of Thrive, The Alliance of Nonprofits for San Mateo County (Thrive), Center for Excellence in Nonprofits (CEN), and Silicon Valley Council of Nonprofits (SVCN) designed to institute a more collaborative approach to cultivating board service.
With support from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, we have decided to take the successful Thrive OnBoard event, now in its fifth year, and bring it to all of Silicon Valley through this powerful coalition. We are excited to join forces to bring you the very best of our networks, educational resources, and leadership development specialists to take nonprofit board service to the next level!
A robust, trusted network of nonprofit organizations, businesses, government agencies, elected officials and civic leaders, Thrive helps to build the capacity of nonprofits, large and small, to strengthen San Mateo County's critical community organizations and connections. In an increasingly technology-driven world, Thrive is real people, meeting real challenges, with real collaboration — on the ground, face-to-face, 200 strong and counting.
The Center for Excellence in Nonprofits (CEN) believes that the most effective way to increase the capacity of the nonprofit sector is to strengthen and sustain the leaders and board members of nonprofit organizations. Through high-quality programs, consultation, and training we enable leaders – at all stages – to learn and implement the best practices of management and governance for the betterment of the communities we all serve.
