Positions Open at Education Foundation

Successful nonprofits need more than charitable donations to thrive; the best ones leverage the expertise and skills of dedicated board members to achieve their mission.

We want your help! We are actively recruiting for Foundation board members with specific skills. Here are our current openings:

- Fundraising Chair
- Website manager: Maintain Joomla-based site
- Database manager: Research and recommend new database, manage data, and train foundation members in database use
- Treasurer
- Annual Appeal Coordinator

The time commitment is modest, the rewards significant -- the chance to help motivate our students to become lifelong learners.
