Lilith Fund, a Texas-based abortion fund, has two openings on its Board of Directors for 2018! Lilith Fund provides direct financial assistance to people in the southern half of Texas seeking abortion services, and our board members actively oversee and participate in the work of the organization. We are looking for highly motivated individuals who are passionate about reproductive justice and excited to work to help fund abortion.
Lilith Fund has experienced a tremendous level of growth over the last five years. We hired our first Executive Director, significantly expanded our advocacy and movement-building work, and raised more funding for our clients than ever before. This year, we are hiring four additional staff members.
Lilith Fund is especially looking for board members with a background in financial management and planning, information technology and information security, non-profit organizational management, or communications. Ideal candidates will have some fundraising experience and an understanding of the state of abortion access in Texas.
Lilith Fund’s Board of Directors is a working board and operates out of three major cities in Texas: Houston, Austin and San Antonio. We are especially interested in applicants from San Antonio, but encourage applications from Houston and Austin residents as well. Our board meets monthly via video conference call. We also hold quarterly in-person meetings rotating between San Antonio, Austin and Houston.
Lilith Fund is committed to investing in the leadership of people of color, people who have had abortions and/or who have received funding from an abortion fund(s), low-income people, people with disabilities, immigrant people, Native people, formerly incarcerated people, queer people, and trans people. We do not discourage or discriminate against people with criminal convictions, and you will not be asked if you have ever been convicted of a crime on the application or interview.
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.
There is an application and interview process for interested applicants. Please complete the 2017 Board Member Application and send a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org before midnight on December 19, 2016.
