West Fund is now accepting applications to join our 2016 Board of Directors!
The West Fund, a West Texas-based abortion fund, is looking for energetic leaders with a commitment to abortion access to join our Board of Directors. West Fund provides direct financial assistance to individuals seeking abortion services and our board members actively oversee and participate in the work of the organization.
We have a wide and diverse client base and we hope to achieve that kind of diversity in our board. Serving on the Board of Directors is a great opportunity for young leaders to gain valuable experience and we encourage young people to apply.
Although we are based in El Paso, we are interested in recruiting board members from all across the state. We’re particularly interested in applicants with a background in non-profit fundraising, non-profit financial management, accounting, database administration, and data analysis.
The West Fund is made up entirely of volunteers, but board members will have the responsibilities and duties of a working board. Board members should expect to spend at least 5 hours per week working for the organization. Our board meets weekly, either via google hangout, via conference call, or in person.
As an organization committed to reproductive justice, we have a responsibility to create a pipeline of leadership and development opportunities for young people, low-income people, people of color, LGBTQIA people and others who are repeatedly and systematically affected by reproductive inequities. People of color and LGBTQIA people are strongly encouraged to apply.
