The Greenville area is full of different nonprofits, and those nonprofits have leadership boards, and the people serving on those leadership boards collectively make a huge impact locally. Do you want to make a difference in your city? Maybe consider looking into which local nonprofits have open board seats.
But we also want to help you with the first step — we want to put together a list of those open positions so they’re all in one place. So, whether you work for a local nonprofit looking to grow your board or are already a board member who knows of an open position, share it with us. 👇
What nonprofit do you work for?
And what is the best way to get in contact to learn more about the position?
