Seeking Board Members for Nonprofit Knitting4Peace
Knitting4Peace is entering an exciting era with new leadership and an active Board. At the same time, we are seeking to expand and diversify our Board of Directors to better reflect the communities we serve and to implement the functions entrusted to the Board. We are reaching out to the Craft Industry Alliance community to find passionate leaders who want to join us.
Our mission is to create and deliver requested hand-crafted items that offer hope, healing, comfort, and peace. Our recipients are people in our own neighborhoods, as well as individuals in global areas of conflict or suffering.
The function of our Board is to serve as stewards of Knitting4Peace. The Board is the policy-making body of the organization and is entrusted with its care, management, finances and business. Board members are volunteers and unpaid.
While we welcome applications from anyone who expresses an interest, we are particularly looking for people with experience in fundraising, human resources, legal, bookkeeping & accounting, and/or nonprofit management. We welcome interest from those who have worked in both the nonprofit and business worlds. Our goal is to increase the skills and diversity of our board demographic.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on responsibilities, time commitment and to request an application. Please feel free to also pass this opportunity along to your network regardless of their participation with Craft Industry Alliance.
