Role available (ie. Board, committee):
- Board meetings occur quarterly via conference line as our board is scattered around the world. Those meetings last roughly 1 ½ hours.
- Projects: projects that align with skills and interest of individual board members. Examples include:
- Researching and reviewing grants
- Assistance with fundraising
- Assisting with corporate giving programs
- Helping with accounting
- Mentoring some of our colleagues based in South Africa.
Each board member is asked to for an annual donation at a level that is personally meaningful to them. All donations are confidential.
People with expertise in law, grant writing, fundraising are especially needed; however, the single biggest thing the Board looks for is passion for our mission and a willingness to contribute at least one hour per week to our organization.
