Join our board

We are seeking volunteer board members who are not only inspired and motivated by our mission but also have significant time, resources, and networks to commit to Family Holiday Promise. Notably, we are looking for board members who are driven to help us grow so we can help more kids in need. We also have openings on committees and on our advisory board.

Board Members will support and directly contribute to fundraising activities through participation in fundraising strategy development and targeted donor engagement. Board Members will make Family Holiday Promise a philanthropic priority; so that we can credibly solicit contributions from foundations, organizations, and individuals.

The Board is a working board, and the organization’s success relies on board involvement and contribution. Board members serve a three-year term. Board members donate their time and serve without pay.
