Now Accepting Applications for the 2016 Lilith Fund Board of Directors
The Lilith Fund, a Texas-based abortion fund, is looking for energetic leaders with a commitment to abortion access to join our Board of Directors. Lilith provides direct financial assistance to low-income Texans 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.
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.
Although our office is based in Austin, we are interested in recruiting board members from Houston/Gulf Coast, San Antonio, south Texas, El Paso, and Austin areas. We’re particularly interested in applicants with a background in non-profit fundraising, non-profit financial management, accounting, database administration, and data analysis.
The Lilith Fund has a part-time hotline coordinator, 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 monthly, either in person, via conference call, or via chat, but we also have quarterly in-person meetings in rotating cities where we have board representation. We do offer partially subsidized travel costs to board members traveling to board meetings.
