Apply to Join our 2017 Board of Directors!
Lilith Fund, a Texas-based abortion fund, is looking for an energetic leader with a commitment to abortion access to join our Board of Directors. Lilith Fund provides direct financial assistance to low-income people in the southern half of Texas seeking abortion services, and our board members actively oversee and participate in the work of the organization. There is currently one opening on our Board of Directors.
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, people with disabilities, and others who are repeatedly and systematically affected by reproductive inequities. We believe people directly impacted by these issues are best positioned to design and lead solutions. People of color, young people, and LGBTQIA people are strongly encouraged to apply.
Although our office is based in Austin, we are interested in recruiting board members from San Antonio, Houston/Gulf Coast, South Texas, West Texas, and Central Texas areas. We’re particularly interested in applicants with a background in grassroots/nonprofit fundraising, community organizing, advocacy, accounting, and database administration.
Lilith Fund has a part-time hotline coordinator and full-time Executive Director located in Austin, but board members will have the responsibilities and duties of a working board. Board members should expect to spend ~5 hours per week working for the organization. Board activities are divided into committees, where most of our work occurs. Our board meets monthly, either in person or via video conference call. We also hold 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.
