Do you dream of building a vital community for everyone? Consider joining our board of directors.

The Community Foundation is seeking expressions of interest from people who have the capacity, energy, and spirit to join our board and work collaboratively with each other and our staff to advance the strategic goals of the organization. We’re looking for people who embody a commitment to community building in all that they do.

We know that this commitment can take many forms and that sometimes the most qualified leaders are those that are least likely to put their hands up for leadership opportunities. Included below are a set of attributes that we feel would make for a strong addition to our board:

  • A tendency to lean toward future oriented, big picture thinking and problem solving
  • Openness to exploring the role of philanthropy and charities in creating systems of fairness, justice, and equity
  • Desire to learn about and participate in non-profit governance, including strategic decision making, policy work, networking and operational fundraising
  • Interest in finding opportunities for growth through learning, collaboration and consensus building

In addition to these general attributes, we are also seeking to welcome individuals who may have experience in the fields of finance, human resources or fundraising, and those with a strong understanding of issues and opportunities in the City or County of Peterborough.

We are striving to build a Board of Directors that represents the diversity of our community – this includes, but is not limited to diversity of race, ethnicity, age, gender identity, geography, socioeconomic status, and other lived experiences.  Anyone over 18 years of age, who lives or works in the City of County of Peterborough is eligible to serve on the Board.
