Parksville Qualicum Community Foundation is seeking applications from community leaders interested in serving as a member of the Board of Directors.
This is an opportunity to support and influence the future direction of a dynamic community foundation.
Founded in 1999, PQCF is one of 191 similar organizations located all over Canada, helping communities be resilient places to live, work, and play for generations to come. PQCF is a member of Community Foundations of Canada—a national voice using local resources and stakeholders to find local solutions.
The PQCF Board works with donors to build endowments; grants funds to local organizations and initiatives; and brings neighbours together to strengthen community philanthropy.
“Being part of our Board is very rewarding. The Board forms regional grant committees, who determine recipients of the next grant programs,” says Acting Chair, Len Townsend.
Applicants should be willing to serve for a minimum of one two-year term, with the ability to participate and contribute as member and/or chair of PQCF Committees. Preference will be given to candidates who have prior experience sitting on and/or reporting to a board; the ability to take on broad multi-committee responsibilities and work well on a team; contribute reasoned opinion and accept and support decisions reached by the Board; and have experience working with a diverse membership.
Candidates can forward their interest to: [email protected]
Thank you for your interest! We will receive applications until Friday, May 21st.
