After five successful years of OnBoard events on the peninsula hosted by Thrive, SVCN partnered with CEN and Thrive this year to host the first OnBoard Match event in San Jose. Local nonprofits and prospective board members had the chance to learn more about each other in hopes of finding their best match. It was a joy to see so many passionate people in one room discussing ways to improve our community.
Thirty-five Silicon Valley organizations participated in our inaugural San Jose event representing a wide array of causes, including the arts, environment, education, health, and social services. Over 75 board seekers filled the room with energy and excitement for meeting likeminded and community driven individuals.
Last week, Thrive, in partnership with CEN and SVCN, proudly hosted the 5th annual OnBoard Match event in San Carlos to connect nonprofits with potential board members. It was an amazing evening showcasing incredible people working to make our community a better place.
This year, 30 great organizations representing the extensive San Mateo County nonprofit community (education, children, youth & family services, health, veterans, environment and sustainability, and more) exhibited at OnBoard Match in San Carlos. Nearly 100 board seekers from different walks of life attended the event. From the very beginning, the energy in the room was phenomenal!
