Our board is deeply passionate about Think Dignity’s mission and vision. In addition to standard governance roles and responsibilities, board members serve as community leaders and actively fundraise and network to advance basic dignity. Serving on the Board is an excellent opportunity for community leaders, activists, seasoned professionals, budding entrepreneurs, and anyone else looking to make a read and lasting impact on the lives of others. Board membership is a rewarding experience, which allows you to give back to the community, showcase your leadership skills, and network with others passionate about our city and its diverse communities.
Board Member Opportunities
Think Dignity’s Board is both a governance and working board. That means Board members are
responsible for guiding the organization to achieve its mission, vision, and strategic goals. Board
members also provide financial oversight and ensure compliance with the organization’s legal and
ethical requirements. Board members oversee and guide the Executive Director. And finally, as a
working board, Board members help to fundraise and execute our programs as active volunteers.
