In this pilot, nonprofits across the United States can post board of director openings on an online platform, and MBA graduates can search for available nonprofit board opportunities that align with their interests and skillsets.

This pilot is an extension of the Rustandy Center’s Alumni Board Connect program, but expands this opportunity to nonprofits and Chicago Booth alumni outside of the Chicagoland area.

Why should my nonprofit participate in Rustandy Nonprofit Board Link?

  • Leverage Booth MBAs to support strategic work on finance, governance, fundraising, and more

When posting a position, you can describe the skillsets, financial and time commitments, and mission alignment that you’re looking for, and we’ll work to identify a candidate with similar qualifications and interests.

I am interested in posting a board opportunity. What is my next step?
Your organization must first submit an application. Once submitted, a Rustandy Center team member will reach out with directions on posting your board position on Rustandy Nonprofit Board Link.
