About Us

The Board Developer Foundation is a recognized 501(c)(3) organization. It was founded by Jim Hayden in 2016.

The primary goal of the Foundation is to help develop organizational capacity and sustainability for non-profit organizations in Maricopa County.  We seek to support organizations that will benefit from hands-on involvement by a group of experienced, expert advisors and consultants who have a wide range of talents and skills to offer non-profits.  All advice and counsel is provided completely free of charge, but is provided to organizations that are selected in our application process.  Normally, Foundation engagements are no more than three months, but extensions may be available based on the organizations needs of up to one year.

Our Mission:

"To make a meaningful contribution to our community by building the capacity and strengthening the management of non-profit organizations in Maricopa County."

A completed questionnaire is required for consideration.  All applications must be submitted in electronic form utilizing the Apply Now button.  Decisions on support will be made based on the application, the organizational impact that is expected, and the match of the request with current talents of Foundation personnel.
