What You'll Do:Are you passionate about the environment? Looking for a meaningful way to give back? Be a part of the founding board of directors as We Plant it Forward launches a new chapter. We are going solo. After eleven formative years with its parent organization, WPiF is launching its own nonprofit.
Must be 22 years or older
Details:It is an exciting time to join us as we form our founding Board of Directors. We Plant it Forward (WPiF) is ready to go solo. We leave our parent organization feeling good about where it has brought our work. Now it is time to build on it. Among the many tasks that need to happen, WPiF needs to form a founding board of directors. We are looking for people who can make a commitment to helping the organization advance its mission. Read on to get a general sense of what we expect from board candidates.
As a founding board member your commitment is for one year. During this time, you will have fiduciary responsibility to ensure we build a sustainable future for the organization and that our activities advance the WPiF mission. Our mission is to restore and preserve the natural environment to bring harmony to all life. Besides having oversight of the finances you will help find board members for the next board term. In addition, your responsibilities will involve fundraising and advocacy work for WPiF. Fundraising means reaching people who will donate to the organization. Making a donation yourself that is manageable for you. Advocacy means sharing with your network of colleagues, friends, community and family the work that WPiF is doing. We plan to make this work as manageable as possible for you. We will meet every three months for 1-2 hours at a time that works best for all the board members. There will be work that needs to be done between each meeting, like networking, reviewing documents to prepare for a board meeting, and fundraising.
Below are a list of WPiF program areas for you to get an overview of what we are all about and of course there is the website, www.TerraVitaStewards.org. A new website with the url www.WePlantitForward.org is currently under development.
Tree seed gathering (partnership with Project Pando)
